Ecology in a Changing Ocean
Text from poster
Climate change not only warms the ocean; it alters its very chemistry. Noisette’s research explores how shallow coastal ecosystems dominated by seagrasses and seaweeds respond to climate change. She addresses sustainability by involving local end users and stakeholders in the research process.
Fanny Noisette began her research career in France, earning a degree in biology and a Masters degree in Marine and Coastal Sciences from the Université de Bretagne Occidentale, and a PhD in Marine Sciences from the Station Biologique de Roscoff in France. She came to Canada in 2016, conducting post-doctorate research on the impact of ocean acidification on lobsters at the Université du Québec à Rimouski (UQAR).
Her research on marine biology continued when she accepted the Marie Curie fellowship from the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, where she studied the impact of seaweed on the environment and the impact it has on invertebrates. She returned to UQAR in 2018 as a professor, where she continues to study the impacts of climate change on ocean chemistry.
