Bio/Research

Prof. Beth Parker is the Director of the G³⁶⁰ Institute for Groundwater Research and a professor in the School of Engineering at the University of Guelph. She holds a Senior Industrial Research Chair in Fractured Rock Contaminant Hydrology from the Canadian Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and is the associate director of the University Consortium.

Her research specializations include:
• Improving characterization, remediation, monitoring technologies and data analysis for aged industrial contaminated sites in complex hydrogeologic settings.
• High-resolution data useful for Groundwater resource water including protection for private and municipal water supplies in fractured sedimentary rock.
• Evaluating water quantity and quality impacts to surface water and groundwater from natural resource extraction (i.e. mining, upstream oil and gas, permits to take water).
• Improve groundwater flow systems for understanding flow path and fluxes including Surface water interaction.

Parker’s long-term focus has been on quantifying the role of diffusion on various contaminant source zone types and plume evolution, often creating limits to cost effective remediation. This is synergistic with her long term interest in characterization of aquitards to better understand groundwater flow systems, linking recharge areas to discharge areas.
