Jessie Young-Robertson

Jessie Young-Robertson
Research assistant professor

Jessie Robertson is an expert in ecohydrology, terrestrial ecosystems, and the role of boreal and arctic plants in the water cycle. Her research focuses on how changes in the boreal and arctic system (from climate change, shifts in plant species, permafrost thaw, etc.) affect the dynamics of how plants move, store, and flux water.

Robert Rember

Robert Rember
Research assistant professor

Robert Rember is an expert in marine and environmental chemistry, Arctic and subarctic oceanography, and biogeochemistry of trace metals. His studies include understanding how different physical, chemical and biological processes regulate trace metal speciation and distribution in the open ocean and coastal regions, and how these in turn affect the ecosystem. These studies include snow, sea ice, seawater, suspended sediment, marine sediments and marine aerosols.
