Kathryn Hargan


Deepening our understanding of climate change and the Arctic

Dr. Kathryn Hargan’s postdoctoral research in the Canadian Arctic will help increase our understanding of how seabirds and the atmosphere affect the transfer and concentration of nutrients and contaminants to coastal sites, as well as how climate change might influence their availability in northern environments.

Dr. Hargan is the 2015 winner of the L’Oréal-UNESCO excellence in research fellowship and is a W. Garfield Weston Postdoctoral Fellow for northern research at the University of Ottawa. She holds a MSc in science from Trent University and a PhD in biology from Queen’s University.
