We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming – Women in Academia – to bring you this special edition of VIEW to the U that features Kent Moore, a Professor in the Department of Chemical and Physical Sciences at UofT Mississauga (UTM), and as of July 1, 2018 is UTM’s Vice-Principal, Research, appointed for a three-year term.

On this episode, Kent talks about his research, which investigates climate change, using theoretical, computational, and observational techniques to understand the dynamics of the climate system, and he also studies the impact that weather has on human physiology and performance.

He talks about how he got into this field of study, and also what he hopes to accomplish as UTM's new Vice-Principal, Research.
