Research

Research Interests

My general research interests include: River ice engineering, urban drainage and hydraulic engineering. My specific interests are in: freeze-up processes, frazil ice generation and evolution, water quality monitoring and modelling, and stormwater pond design and operation.

Research currently in progress

  • Field measurements of frazil ice properties
  • Field monitoring of anchor ice growth and release
  • Modelling of river ice processes
  • Field investigations of supercooling in rivers
  • Stormwater pond monitoring and modelling
