Bio/Research

Dr. James Munroe was raised in Winnipeg, MB, and completed his undergraduate and master�s in applied math from the University Waterloo. He went on to complete a PhD in physics from the University of Alberta, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in France at Ecole Normale Sup�rieure de Lyon. He is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Physics and Physical Oceanography.

His research specializes in stratified fluid dynamics, particularly internal waves. �These waves, which are common in the ocean, exist beneath the surface of water and are driven by buoyancy forces caused by density differences,� explained Dr. Munroe. �Internal waves are responsible for transporting energy and momentum and, when they break, mixing heat and nutrients within the ocean.�
