Benoît graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Arts with Specialization in Geography and Minor in Geomatics and Spatial Analysis from the University of Ottawa in June 2020. As part of the GEG 4100 Glaciology field course in Iceland during his fourth year of undergraduate studies, Benoît had the opportunity to step foot on a glacier for the very first time. Ever since, he has developed a profound interest in glaciology, which impelled him to pursue a MSc in Geography under the supervision of Dr. Luke Copland . Benoît’s research has the main objective of reconstructing the surge history of Iceberg and Airdrop Glaciers, located on Axel Heiberg Island, Nunavut, in a region where a complete active-quiescent surge cycle has previously never been studied. During his free time, Benoît enjoys playing the drums, hiking, exercising and occasionally going flying to bring up family and friends or to build his flight hours.
