Collaborators and Graduate Students

Graduate Students

Farzam A.
is a PhD student developing numerical circulation models for stormwater ponds storing water for potential reuse. The models will provide predictions on the distribution of contaminants in the ponds both spatially and temporally as a function of climate and fluid dynamics. This work is conducted in collaboration with Dr. He (UofC), Dr. Neumann (UofA) and Dr. Checkley (UofC).

Hauke B.
Hauke is a PhD student developing fuzzy mathematical expressions for oil spill extent in marine environments using drifter data and numerical circulation models.  This work is conducted in collaboration with Dr. Charles Hannah (co-supervisor) of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

Aditya R.

Aditya is a PhD student researching the long term impacts of flooding on transportation systems. He is part of the University of Calgary's IISC CREATE Program and co-supervised by with Dr. He

Jessica D.
Jessica is researching bioretention of heavy metals and evapotranspiration in bioretention cells.

Sarah Q.
Co-supervised with Dr. Phalguni Mukhopadhaya, Sarah is evaluating instruments for thermal heat transfer monitoring in walls.

Fatima T.
Fatima is working on her masters degree and researching hydraulic models of treatment ponds in series for treating polluted runoff.
