Researcher/PhD Candidate

Benjamin Misiuk holds a BSc (Hons.) in Environmental Science from Acadia University, and is currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Geography at Memorial University. Ben’s PhD research focuses on integrating spatial concepts and analyses into marine habitat mapping for the Canadian Arctic. He is interested in how this can facilitate the use of multisource datasets and statistical models for producing seabed maps. Future work will be on developing creative approaches to maximize the use of marine data – especially remotely-sensed acoustic data – and also on multiscale analyses of seabed habitats.

Ben is currently a research assistant with Dr. Katleen Robert and the 4D Oceans Lab at the School of Ocean Technology. He is part of the Coastal Habitat Mapping of Placentia Bay project and will be mapping the habitat of sand lance as part of a post-doc after completing his PhD.
