Dr. Paul Smith is a Research Scientist with Environment and Climate Change Canada, specializing in the study and conservation of coastal birds and ecosystems in Canada’s Arctic. He and his students study the impacts of the changing Arctic environment on the breeding ecology of birds, and explore innovative applications of technology to better understand the behaviour of migratory birds throughout the year. His current research addresses the impacts of a surprising but significant agent of environmental change – overabundant geese – on Arctic ecosystems, as well as studies to understand how the substantial costs of long-distance migration carry-over to influence other phases in the annual cycle.
Dr. Smith will share his perspectives on science careers in government and in the private sector.
