Area of Expertise:
After her Ph.D. at the University of Victoria (BC), Laura did postdocs at Dalhousie University (NS) and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (WA), where she became a permanent Scientist. Last fall, Laura moved to Vancouver Island as a Research Scientist for Fisheries and Oceans Canada, working now at the Institute of Ocean Sciences.
Laura Bianucci is an oceanographer with expertise in coupled physical-biogeochemical ocean models. She applies these models to study issues related to ocean acidification, ocean deoxygenation, aquaculture, and climate change.
