Event Details

Alliance Française Halifax is hosting a new Apéro des idées on Monday, June 29, 2019 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Halifax Club, 1682 Hollis Street. Apéro des idées is an opportunity to learn, exchange and debate in French on philosophical, scientific, sociological and technological subjects…

Two guests will come to talk about the current state of scientific knowledge on the Arctic Ocean. Deepening this knowledge is all the more important and urgent as this region is particularly vulnerable to climate change.

Timothée Bourgeois, PhD in oceanography, obtained his doctoral thesis in 2017 at the Pierre Simon Laplace Institute, Paris. His work has focused on the effects of human-induced disturbances on the biogeochemistry of the coastal ocean at the global scale. He is currently working at Dalhousie University on the effect of sea ice melt on phytoplankton development in the Arctic Ocean.

Benjamin Richaud is an ENSTA Paris engineer and holds a Master’s degree in Physical Oceanography and Climate from École Polytechnique (Paris). After working for a year in marine renewable energy in Ireland, he is currently doing a PhD at Dalhousie University, using numerical models to study the impact of global warming on the Arctic marine environment.
