David Barber is one of our nation’s most influential Arctic researchers. A Canada Research Chair and professor at the
University of Manitoba, he is at the forefront of studying the impact of climate change on sea ice. Notably, his efforts have led to the establishment of a marine research centre in northern Manitoba, and have expanded Canada’s capacity to detect and mitigate transportation-related contaminant spills. Additionally, he has contributed extensively to regulatory-, policy- and community-based monitoring programs to measure and respond to Arctic climate change.
