I apply “basin analysis” techniques to glacial basins to support regional groundwater investigations and mineral exploration. I am involved in aquifer analogue studies, geological modelling, and development of conceptual models of glacial systems. Aquifer analogue studies are a powerful technique for improved understanding of aquifer geometry and heterogeneity. I am involved in the application of allostratigraphic (sequence stratigraphy) concepts for the development of 3-D numeric geological models to support regional groundwater studies. From a sedimentological perspective I am interest in advancing the understanding of glacifluvial and glacilacustrine deposits. Of particular interest is the sedimentary signature of high-energy flows and the record of critical and supercritical fluidal and hyperconcentrated flows. I am also interested in understanding the paleohydraulic significance of meltwater events from the Laurentide Icesheet. I have published 8 journal papers, 2 papers in peer reviewed special publications, 14 proceeding extended abstracts or papers and over 40 departmental reports/papers and maps. I have co-chaired 3 workshops on 3-D geological mapping and topical sessions at national geosciences meetings. I am a reviewer for 6 journals pertaining to sedimentology, glacial geology, hydrogeology, and environmental sciences.
