In the relaunch of our podcast, we bring you an interview with Dal’s latest Rhodes Scholar, Sierra Sparks. Engineering student Sierra talks about her hard work getting the scholarship, leadership that inspires women and changing the world. We’ve also changed our name to “Behind the Story” and we’ll be uploading this to our Youtube channel to include captioning.

In this episode, we talk to Dr. Katja Fennel. She’s an oceanographer, Killam Professor, and chair of the Oceanography department here at Dal.
Dr. Fennel’s research involves the development of physical-biogeochemical models, which are tools that can help us better understand and predict the state of the ocean as the climate changes. Dr. Fennel uses her education in mathematics to build these extremely complex predictive models with her team. They’re currently contributing to the biogeochemical expansion of the global Argo platform, BGC-Argo, and anticipate launching 40 autonomous vehicles in the coming years to collect the comprehensive data needed to inform these models.
This episode covers Dr. Fennel’s experience growing up behind the Iron Curtain in East Germany, her path to oceanography, and the challenges involved in modelling dynamic ocean environments.
Sciographies is brought to you by Dalhousie University’s Faculty of Science and campus-community radio station CKDU 88.1 FM in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
