Pia is a first year MSc student at Carleton University.  She is working on a PermafrostNet project simulating permafrost in heterogeneous steep bedrock slopes in western Canada and creating descriptive analysis of temperature and metrics related to permafrost thaw for important past slope instabilities.

She completed a BSc in Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis at Lund University in Sweden, where her Bachelor thesis focussed on modelling of arctic coastlines under a changing climate.  She has previously worked with the Yukon Geological Survey and the University of Calgary on geological mapping in the south-east Yukon.  Pia grew up in Whitehorse, Yukon, and is currently residing in Ottawa.
