Nicolas Van Nieuwenhove is a micropaleontologist whose research activities are focused on paleoenvironmental reconstructions of upper ocean conditions in the temperate to Arctic regions of the North Atlantic Ocean during the last glacial-interglacial cycle. He holds a MSc. degree from Ghent University and Université Lille 1, and received his PhD in 2008 from the Geomar Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research-Kiel University, where he also was a postdoctoral fellow. After further research stays at Geotop-Université du Québec à Montréal, Aarhus University, and the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland, he is now a research associate at University of New Brunswick in Fredericton, where he is involved in the study of the Holocene paleoenvironment of Baffin and Hudson Bay using dinoflagellate cysts, pollen grains and foraminifer assemblages.
