Owen is a PhD candidate from the University of Waterloo. His research interests include contaminant transport modelling, fractured rock hydrogeology, and multiphase flow. Currently, Owen performed modeling work of multiphase flow in peat using computational fluid dynamics simulations in COMSOL as part of his undergraduate thesis. His PhD work is focussed around modeling the trajectory of the constructed Nikanotee fen under a number of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) climate change scenarios for both the hydrological outcomes and geochemical transport dynamics of salts and naphthenic acids.
