Sherbrooke, June 8, 2017 –
Bishop’s University is proud to announce that Dr. Matthew Peros has renewed his Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Climate and Environmental Change.
Dr. Peros is an Associate Professor in the Department of Environment and Geography.
“We are very proud to see that Dr. Peros’s important work will continue thanks to this $500,000 grant from the Government of Canada,” said Dr. Miles Turnbull, Vice-Principal Academic. “This Chair will help us continue to foster a thriving research culture at Bishop’s.”
“The renewal of my Canada Research Chair will allow me to continue research in the areas of long-term climate change and human impacts on the environment. Specifically, my students and I are focused on understanding how hurricane activity and sea level rise will change with ongoing global warming, and we are also working to identify the extent to which human activities have altered natural systems at sites in southern Quebec, eastern Canada, and the Caribbean,” explained Dr. Peros. “Such work is critical as it helps us better predict what can be expected in the future, and also how our impacts on the environment can be mitigated or even reversed.”
