Our research projects do not exclusively focus on river water but also on exchanges of water and pollutants between the atmosphere, plants, soils and the aquatic environment. GIS and remote sensing techniques are routinely applied to develop indicators of water transport mechanisms and environmental contamination. Mathematical models are also tested to improve hydrologic and ecohydrologic predictions.

Dr. Genevieve Ali welcomes inquiries from potential undergraduate and graduate students from various disciplines, especially students with backgrounds in Environmental Science, Physical Geography, Geomatics, Soil Science, Biology, Geology, Engineering or Computer Science. Willingness to combine field work, laboratory and computer analysis is required. Previous experience with hydrology, biogeochemistry or modelling is definitely an asset; however appropriate training will be provided to promising and highly motivated candidates. Interested students are encouraged to consult the “News” page for active student recruitment news. Alternatively, interested students can contact Dr. Genevieve Ali directly ( to discuss future opportunities or broad, cross-disciplinary research ideas that they might have.
