Alexandre S. Gagnon0000-0002-1301-6015
Dr Alexandre Gagnon is a member of the Environmental Initiatives Research Group since November 2007 and contributes to the teaching of Environmental Science and the MSc programme in Environmental and Clean Technology in the School of Science. A Geographer and Climatologist by training, his research interests range from understanding the temporal and spatial patterns of climate variability in Scotland to vulnerability and adaptation to climate change. His current research aims at assessing the vulnerability to climate change at the local/regional level through the application of conceptual models of vulnerability assessments, including assessments of adaptive capacity, and the identification of opportunities and barriers to adaptation. Hence, his research is multi-disciplinary, falling at the interface between the natural and social sciences; and involves working in partnerships with local government stakeholders. Dr. Gagnon is co-leader of the Society theme of the Scottish Alliance for Geoscience, Environment and Society (SAGES).
