A civil and environmental engineering professor at Waterloo Engineering has had his research chair renewed for another five years by the federal government.
James Craig, the Canada Research Chair in Hydrological Modelling and Analysis, will receive $500,000 over five years to continue his work.
The award is one of 188 new and renewed chairs at 43 post-secondary institutions across the country selected for over $151 million in funding.
“Canada Research Chairs are some of the world’s brightest scholars and scientists who contribute to new discoveries and help us make sense of the world we live in,” the government said in a media release this week.
Craig’s expertise is in numerical and analytical modelling of water resource systems, with a focus on surface water hydrology, regional-scale groundwater flow, and subsurface heat transfer/phase change simulation.
