Teddi joined NSERC PermafrostNet in 2021 as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Ottawa under the supervision of Drs. Antoni Lewkowicz, Fabrice Calmels, and Anne-Marie LeBlanc. The goal of her project is to integrate existing and future Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT) surveys in a Canadian Permafrost Electrical Resistivity Survey database (CPERS). The data in CPERS will be used to infer the presence, continuity, and depth of permafrost over a range of spatial scales and detect changes over time.
Much of Teddi’s research has focused on adapting geophysical survey design and data processing to meet specific project deliverables and produce meaningful estimates of uncertainty. Teddi received her PhD from the University of Calgary, where she developed a novel inversion strategy that improved resolution of a seasonally frozen surface layer and underlying target in a time-lapse monitoring scenario. Her MSc research explored how inversion parameters influenced interpretation of paleochannel volume and bedrock depth in ERT tomograms. Teddi also has a passion for teaching, learning, and community outreach.
