ello and thank you for visiting this site. I am a Professor in the Department of Geology at the University
My area of research is in groundwater contamination and remediation, and the development of related
characterization tools. I received a Pearson Medal for excellence in research in the Earth Sciences Department
at the University of Waterloo, and I was a recipient of an NSF Career Grant to study the use of granular iron (zero valent
iron) in groundwater remediation. I invented and patented the cross-injection system for introducing nutrients
to aquifers for bioremediation, and the Point Velocity Probe (PVP) for the direct measurement of groundwater velocity.
I was awarded the a Kemper Fellowship for excellence in teaching.
This website provides an overview of projects, facilities, and publications related to research with which
I have been involved. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
