Colin P. LaroquE
I grew up in Saskatoon and went to the U of S for my undergraduate degree in Physical Geography. I then went to the University of Victoria and completed my MSc. and PhD. degrees and ultimately becoming a tree-ring scientist. While at UVic, I started to teach. I then moved to Edmonton for a postdoctoral term and taught at U of A as well.
I was then offered my first tenure track position at Mount Allison University in New Brunswick. We moved to the east coast and while there, I created the MAD Lab which was very successful through the years. After ten years though, I jumped at the chance to move back home to Saskatoon and I started in the Soil Science Department in January 2014, while still continuing work in the now Saskatoon-based MAD Lab.
