David Atkinson was a research scientist and professor at the International Arctic Research Center (IARC) and Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Alaska Fairbanks from 2004 to 2010. Since 2010, he has been a professor and department chair in the Department of Geography at the University of Victoria in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. He earned a PhD in 2000 from the University of Ottawa that was focused on high-arctic climate issues and surface air temperature modeling. As a geographer, David's interests have centered around understanding how weather affects human and natural systems, the effectiveness of climate modeling, and the impacts of climate change in Alaskan coastal communities and the Arctic. He uses a variety of techniques in his research, including computer model analysis, human interviews, and field instrument deployments.
