Dr. Alice Chang
Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences
Dr. Chang received her BSc (Honours) and MSc from the former Department of Geological Sciences at the University of British Columbia, and completed a PhD (2004) in Earth Sciences at Carleton University where she studied Holocene sediments and diatoms from Vancouver Island. She continued with a postdoctoral fellowship (2004–2009) under Dr. Thomas Pedersen in the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of Victoria. Here she researched the geochemistry (trace elements, light stable isotopes, biogenic proxies) of Quaternary marine sediments from the western North American margin. She then returned to UBC to manage the Stable Isotope Facility and the Belowground Ecosystem Group laboratories in the Department of Forest and Conservation Sciences, Faculty of Forestry (2009–2017). Dr. Chang is currently the Project Coordinator for the BeeHIVE Research Excellence Cluster and looks after cluster activities, grant facilitation, education/outreach, communications and public relations.
