David Blowes.

David Blowes

Canada Research Chair in Groundwater Remediation

David Blowes develops improved techniques for the prediction, remediation and prevention of groundwater contamination, including metals, metalloids, pathogens, nutrients and emerging contaminants.

Shaun Frape.

Shaun Frape

Professor, Inorganic Geochemistry (Undergraduate Officer)

Shaun Frape studies groundwater flow, specializing in isotopic tracers used to follow contaminants being transported in natural systems. He studies both deep groundwater systems as well as interactions between groundwater, lakes and rivers on local and regional scales.

Emil O. Frind

Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Groundwater (modelling)

Emil O. Frind pioneered the field of quantitative groundwater science and over his career he has been a leader in the development of modelling methodologies for groundwater processes.

Bob Gillham.

Bob Gillham

Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Groundwater

Robert Gillham is one of Waterloo's most recognised research scientists in the field of groundwater remediation. His invention of the reactive permeable barrier is used worldwide today.

Walter Illman.

Walter Illman

Professor, Physical and Contaminant Hydrogeology

Walter Illman specializes in groundwater hydrology, both in the saturated and unsaturated zones.

He uses mathematical modeling, laboratory and field experiments to understand contaminant transport and natural degradation of organic contaminants in groundwater.

Carol Ptacek.

Carol J. Ptacek

Professor, Contaminant Hydrology and Geochemistry

Dr. Carol Ptacek conducts research on a variety of topics in contaminant hydrogeology and geochemistry, including studies on mechanisms controlling the fate and transport of metals, nutrients, pathogens, organic compounds in groundwater.

Will Robertson.

Will D. Robertson

Research Associate Professor, Groundwater Contamination

Will Robertson studies the physical hydrogeology and geochemistry of contaminated groundwater.

His current research interests include assessment of groundwater impacts from septic systems and mine tailings, innovative remediation techniques, groundwater age dating tools.
