I am a research associate in the department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Waterloo, where my role is to develop models to simulate nutrient cycling in lakes and reservoirs.
My research centers on developing methods and tools to better inform policy-makers of the benefits of using natural resources sustainably. Specifically, I conduct research on the capacity-building side of ecosystem services (e.g., water quality, water supply, nutrient cycling, and flood regulation).
My research involves the behavior and distribution of iron isotopes under multiple cycle of redox condition, with clay minerals and microorganism participating.

I am a PhD student in the multidisciplinary field of water sciences. I have a particular interest in applying models to understand the coupled biogeochemical cycles across media and scales. My interests are
I am a Ph.D. student with a background in geochemistry. My research interests are focused on:
My role as a Research Biogeochemist is to support experimental, field and model-based research activities within the research group.
The primary area of my research is Water Resources and Environmental Remediation. I have employed reactive transport and mass transfer models as well as field and laboratory experiments to explore fate and transport of subsurface contaminants resulted from different sources such as petroleum hydrocarbons and landfill leachate.
My research interests focus on physical, chemical and biological processes involved in gas dynamics in soil systems. I develop experimental setups to perform gas percolation through highly instrumented soil columns under controll
I am currently the Project Coordinator in the Ecohydrology Research Group. My role involves coordinating project activities and outcomes, administrative support, and outreach activities for various projects within the Global Water Futures program at the University of Waterloo.
My primary research interests lie at the intersection of Environmental, Earth, and Computational sciences, and more specifically involve developing and employing computational tools for modeling the spatio-temporal dynamics of biogeochemical/ecohydrological processes at the soil-water interfaces inside the vadose and groundwater zones.
I joined Ecohydrology Research Group (ERG) in June 2021 as a Research Assistant. My role in ERG is to web scrap data from social media platforms with respect to aquatic recreational activities, the data is then processed and analyzed further. I accomplished a doctorate in Computer Science with a research interest focused on Image processing, spatial data, and data mining for predictive analysis.
My research focuses on the effects of the freeze-thaw cycles on carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus speciation dynamics across the reactive interfaces in agroecosystems.
My research project focuses on the influences of dammed reservoirs on a river’s phosphorus (P) load and bioavailability.
Role: Postdoctoral Fellow
My research focuses on the assessment and modelling of aquatic ecosystem services, integrating hydro-ecological and socio-economic data and information to support the sustainable management of freshwater, estuarine and marine ecosystems.
I am a PhD student with a background in hydrogeology. I am interested in the quantification of phosphorus export from stormwater management systems into the aquatic ecosystems, especially during extreme climate events. My research focuses are:

I joined the Earth Sciences (Water) program in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Waterloo and ReSEC Lab at Wilfrid Laurier University in September 2021. My current thesis is a part of the GWF Urban project. It focuses on studying the retrieval algorithm of Cladophora and Chl-a concentration using remote sensing data to calibrate the developed algal growth model of western Lake Ontario.
Anthropogenic phosphorus (P) inputs into agricultural soils have exceeded crop demand for decades. The resulting release of the excess P to surface water contributes to eutrophication, including the occurrence of harmful algal blooms (HABs), with severe threats to drinking water security and aquatic ecosystems.

As a Ph.D. student at ERG, my main focus is on the spatial distribution of microplastics in the Grand River Watershed (GRW), as well as the response of riverine microplastic loadings to precipitation.
I received my master of science in environmental engineering at K. N. Toosi University of Technology. My previous research has covered a variety of environmental topics, with an emphasis on water engineering.
My study interests cover the sediment-water interaction and its constraints on the hydrogeochemistry of geo-contaminants (As, F, I, U) in groundwater, the interactions among organic matter, S and Mn/Fe minerals and consequent influence on the fate of environmentally relevant trace elements in the near-surface environments, the design of environmental biosenso
I am a PhD student in the multidisciplinary field of ecohydrology. I have a strong interest in exploring and assessing phosphorus (P) retention performance of stormwater management (SWM) systems in urban areas, especially under the context of climate change. My research interest focuses on:

My research focuses on the phosphorus (P) transformations, speciation, bioavailability, retention and mobilization within stormwater bioretention cells in cold climates. My research objectives are to:
Serghei’s primary research interest is to study the interaction between physical and biogeochemical processes in lakes using a combination of numerical modelling and field studies to investigate specific processes of interest, such as:
My research interests lie in paleoecology and wetland carbon cycle. These two were embraced in one of my PhD projects, which I most enjoyed working on as well as a reminder to me of the importance of wetland ecosystems in global carbon cycle throughout the Earth’s climate history, for both short (wetland net carbon source or sink?
Nutrients cycles and eutrophication, especially the biogeochemical processes at water- sediment interface that control the internal loading of nutrients.
My research focuses on the role of winter soil processes in affecting soil microbial and geochemical dynamics and on the export of carbon and nutrients to groundwater under changing climate conditions.
I am a Ph.D. student with a background in hydrogeology. My research interests are focused on:
Phosphorus is an essential and often limiting nutrient for the growth of plants and phytoplankton. Excessive loads of phosphorus in aquatic environment can result in accelerated eutrophication.
