Ramon Aravena's current research focuses on groundwater contamination caused by agricultural and urban activities.
David Blowes uses numerical modeling to improve the prediction, remediation and prevention of groundwater contamination from mine wastes and other sources of dissolved metals.
Dr. Coniglio's research focuses on the chemical and physical changes that occur when carbonate sediments turn into limestone and dolomite. He has been involved in research projects across Canada, as well as in the Caribbean, South America, Egypt, Oman, Iran, Italy, and the United States.

Steven Evans is interested in the occurrence and behavior of natural disasters, such as catastrophic landslides, landslide dams, glacial hazards, tsunamis.
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.
