On June 14th, the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE) announced its newly elected Fellows for 2021. Among them is Morwick G360’s founder and director, Dr. Beth Parker.
Founded in 1987, the CAE is an institution that enables skilled engineers to provide strategic advice for the benefit of Canada and Canadians. Each year, the CAE elects new Fellows through a vote of their peers. These Fellows are individuals who have made outstanding contributions to engineering in Canada and worldwide.
The CAE recognizes Dr. Parker for her achievements and service in the field of groundwater protection and contamination treatment:
“Dr. Parker is a global leader in fractured porous geologic media contamination, helping to protect water supplies in Guelph and many other communities. She pioneered new fractured bedrock characterisation methods (as of April 2021: 4 patents and more than 165 refereed papers, among other contributions), including novel downhole borehole devices and procedures for investigating contamination in bedrock aquifers. These methodologies have been used at complex contamination sites worldwide. Her paradigm-shifting contributions have changed how engineers can and should study contaminated sites to inform their remediation decisions. Her new technologies enable effective monitoring of bedrock aquifers.”
