Gary Sonnichsen

Gary Sonnichsen

Program Manager, Geoscience for New Energy Supply
Natural Resources Canada

For over thirty years, Gary has worked for the Geological Survey of Canada – Atlantic (Natural Resources Canada) as a Marine Geologist and as a Research Manager. His research has focused on the Arctic, and the east coast offshore from Nova Scotia to Labrador. Gary manages a team of thirty marine geoscientists and technologists. Together they collect and analyze seabed information from all of Canada’s ocean territories.

Gary will provide an overview of the current projects and priorities of the Geological Survey of Canada (Natural Resources Canada) and how that’s driving technology in their labs and field equipment. He will explain how a federal research lab such as Natural Resources Canada works, how it has changed, and how it collaborates with industry and academia.
