Ryan Connon Senior Research Associate

Yellowknife Research Office, Wilfrid Laurier University

Based out of the Yellowknife research office, Ryan Connon works within a GWF team examining the changing hydrometeorology in the Northwest Territories. He also provides leadership at Laurier’s Yellowknife research office.

Connon recently completed his PhD working with William Quinton, associate professor of Geography and Environmental Studies and director of the Cold Regions Research Centre at Laurier. Connon was born in the NWT. His PhD research focused on understanding the ways in which runoff pathways are expected to change as a result of thawing permafrost in northwestern Canada.

At Laurier's Yellowknife research office, Connon will work with faculty members and graduate students to coordinate field research programs in the territory. His work will include advancing our understanding of the interactions between hydrology and permafrost, and how these interactions are predicted to change in a warming climate.
