Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math? Curiosity on Stage is a series of short, interactive presentations that brings you face-to-face with researchers and innovators. Each week, a featured speaker delivers an engaging presentation followed by an interactive Q-and-A session. Curiosity on Stage invites you to learn directly from people working in the science and technology-related fields. Find out what they do and why it matters – and leave inspired by their stories of curiosity, overcoming obstacles, and innovation.
While everyone is welcome on the Demo Stage, this program is recommended for ages 10+.
This week: Arctic Climate Change: a Terrestrial Perspective
Jacqueline Hung, PhD candidate at Queen’s University
Jacqueline Hung is a PhD candidate at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. Her research focuses on the application of remote sensing and field sampling strategies to investigate the relationships between soil nutrient cycling and gas exchange at the Cape Bounty Arctic Watershed Observatory on Melville Island, NU.
Come and hear Jacqueline talk about her research on terrestrial ecology and where it fits into the bigger climate warming picture. She will also be sharing on her experiences of working and living in a remote area of the Arctic, and what brings her back every year.
