Dr. Julian Aherne is a Tier II Canada Research Chair in Environmental Modeling and associate professor with the Environmental and Resource Science Program at Trent University. He specializes in biogeochemical modeling and air pollution.
Dr. John Bailey is a Ministry of Environment Research Scientist and Adjunct Professor with the Cooperative Freshwater Ecology Unit at Laurentian University's Vale Living with Lakes Centre. His research focuses on detection of and recovery from the effects of multiple stressors on aquatic ecosystems.
Dr. Peter Dillon is a professor with the Departments of Chemistry and Environmental and Resource Science at Trent University. He specializes in biogeochemical modeling on lakes and catchments.
Dr. Catherine Eimers is an associate professor in the Department of Geography at Trent University. Her research focuses on the relationships between changes in climate, hydrology and water quality.
Dr. Joerg Grigull is an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at York University, who works closely with colleagues in the Department of Biology. His work specializes in the adaptation of GIS modelling to the interpretation of landscape-scale interactions of aquatic chemistry and biology with underlying geology, forestry practices and land-use.
Dr. John Gunn is a Tier I Canada Research Chair in Stressed Aquatic Systems and professor in the Biology Department at Laurentian University. His research interests include fisheries ecology and management, climate change and restoration ecology.
Dr. Roland Hall is a professor in the Biology Department at the University of Waterloo. His research combines the fields of aquatic ecology, paleolimnology and multivariate statistics to assess effects of multiple stressors (nutrients, acidification, climate change, river regulation, species invasions) on lakes, wetlands and reservoirs.
Dr. April James is a Tier II Canada Research Chair in Watershed Analysis and Modeling and assistant professor in the Department of Geography at Nipissing University. Her research aims to improve understanding and the prediction of how nutrients and contaminants are transported through the landscape, and how watersheds respond to environmental change.
Chris Jones is a scientist with the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, and is a Laurentian University Ph.D. student. His research is on biological monitoring, in which bottom-dwelling aquatic invertebrates are used as indicators of ecosystem condition.
Dr. Andrew Paterson is a research scientist at the Ontario Ministry of the Environment's Dorset Environmental Science Centre. His work focuses on understanding how multiple stressors affect the water quality and ecology of inland lakes.
Dr. Murray Richardson is an assistant professor in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at Carleton University. He conducts interdisciplinary research in the fields of geomatics, hydrology and biogeochemistry.
Dr. Shaun Watmough is an associate professor in the Environmental and Resource Science Program at Trent University. His research focuses on the biogeochemical cycling in forested catchments with particular emphasis on soil acidification, nitrogen saturation, trace metals and climate change.
Dr. Jennifer Winter is a research scientist with the Ontario Ministry of the Environment where she directs monitoring and research programs that focus on nutrients, algal communities and associated issues in lakes.
Dr. Norman Yan is a professor in the Department of Biology at York University. His long-term professional goal is to understand the impact of multiple environmental stressors on the animal plankton, which he calls the "little living lawnmowers" of lakes.
Dr. Huaxia Yao is a research scientist at the Dorset Environmental Centre of the Ontario Ministry of the Environment. His research focuses on hydrological methods and their applications to water resource, climate change impacts and environmental management.
