Dr. Cale Gushulak received a bachelor’s degree in biology from Brandon University and then a master’s degree in earth science from the University of Western Ontario. He completed is doctoral work in biology at Queen’s University where he examined the impacts of millennial-scale climate change on the biological production and community ecology of small boreal lakes in northeastern Ontario. Dr. Gushulak was then a postdoctoral researcher in the Institute of Environmental Change and Society (IECS) at University of Regina where he worked on the impacts of climate, land use, and hydrologic changes on the water quality of lakes and wetlands in the semi-arid prairie region of Canada. As a postdoctoral research associate at University of Wisconsin-Madison, Dr. Gushulak is working on the role of water waves in the formation, sustainment, and degradation of harmful algal and cyanobacterial blooms. In this project he is interested in how biophysical lake processes interact with lake biogeochemical cycles, and their roles in driver eutrophication.
