Eduardo is an environmental geochemist with 8 years of research and consulting experience, with a MSc in Geology and Geochemistry from the University of Freiburg in Germany. He is a registered Professional Geoscientist in British Columbia and works in consulting within the mining and infrastructure industries in Canada. He first became involved with permafrost research in 2016 while working on the water monitoring program along the Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway. Realizing that the trends in the data could not be fully explained by the geology of the granular source material used for construction, he turned to permafrost researchers to better understand how permafrost degradation could impact water quality. This started him on a quest to learn more about the subject and attempt to fill some gaps in the understanding of permafrost geochemistry. Professionally he is most interested in applied research. He has lived in five countries in North America, South America and Europe and enjoys travelling with his wife and son and meeting new people and new cultures. He travels every year to the Canadian Sub-Arctic and Arctic for work.
