Funded PhD positions at the University of Guelph – Modelling water and nutrient connectivity

Dr. Genevieve Ali is seeking two (2) PhD students to work on the development of models targeting the prediction of water and nutrient connectivity in agro-forested landscapes. The models to be developed will build on traditional hydrologic modelling structures (e.g., grid-based models) as well as ecological models (e.g., agent-based models, graph and circuit theory models), and they will be validated against both ground-based data and remote sensing data.
