Our research focuses primarily on the development of sustainable strategies to enhance the resilience of infrastructure subjected to climate and disaster risks (melting permafrost, landslides, earthquakes). Infrastructure is critical to sustainable community development, especially in northern Canada affected by climate warming. The greatest reward of our research is safety and reducing the vulnerability of Indigenous and northern communities to climate change.
Our forward-looking research program focuses on the following key infrastructure areas: Civil Infrastructure (geotechnical, transportation infrastructure such as foundations, roads, embankments, buried infrastructure), Renewable Geothermal Energy, Community-Based Land Use Planning and Policy-Making, and Planetary Geotechnics (space engineering and construction for the Moon, Mars, and beyond).
