Aaron Langille

Aaron Langille is a PhD student, co-supervised by Jonathan Newman and John Gunn (Laurentian University).  After obtaining an undergraduate degree in Computer Science followed by several years of software development and support experience, Aaron returned to the academic world.  In December of 2008 he completed his MSc. in BioPhysics at Guelph studying computer simulation models of seed dispersal and spatial dynamics of plant populations.  Currently he is investigating quasi-mechanistic, spatially-explicit simulation models of forest disturbance through various mechanisms.  It is hoped that these models will assist stakeholders in decisions regarding the remediation of disturbed landscape, particularly at land-water interfaces.  In his "spare" time Aaron is a permanent sessional instructor for the department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Laurentian University.
