Peter Hülse received his MSc from the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich, Germany, in 2007 and a PhD from the Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John’s, Canada, in 2012. He studied for two years at the University Centre on Svalbard during his MSc, focussing on the paleo-environmental development of a Late Carboniferous carbonate platform. Sedimentary successions were logged and sampled during an expedition with the Norwegian Polar Institute. His PhD thesis focused on the impact of past climatic changes on sediment discharge into Hudson Bay and Labrador, by analysing sediment cores for various physical and geochemical properties.
Peter joined CASP in January 2013. He is currently project leader of the Late Cretaceous Arctic Source Rock Project and is working as a geologist for the Canadian Arctic Islands Project.
