Janine Baijnath is a PhD candidate, working under the supervision of Dr. Claude Duguay at the University of Waterloo in Ontario Canada. Ontario’s local climate is highly influenced by the Laurentian Great Lakes. Residing in this region, Janine found it fit to study the spatiotemporal behaviours and trends in lake effect snowfall and its predictor variables in response to a changing climate. Her research is part of the Canadian Network for Regional Climate and Weather Processes and focuses on the representation of large lakes in weather and climate models. Janine also works as a television meteorologist for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and is a NASA Academy alumnus.
