Master’s Students

Isabella Bowman

MASc Candidate, School of Engineering

Isabella completed her BSc in Honours Earth Sciences with a Hydrogeology Specialization from the University of Waterloo. Her past research has included studying the geochemical evolution of water quality in the Waterloo Moraine. She has had the opportunity to work in the Heavy Metal Isotope Geochemistry Laboratory at the University of Waterloo and be a part of the Water Efficiency team at the Region of Waterloo. Isabella is looking forward to further studying groundwater resources and will be investigating hydrogeologic properties and characteristics of the Elora buried bedrock valley using downhole hydraulic testing and dynamic monitoring techniques.

Cindy Li

MASc Candidate, School of Engineering 

Cindy has an Honours BSc in Earth and Environmental Science from the University of Waterloo. She has gained experience through her co-op terms in groundwater remediation research, environmental management in the mineral resource industry, and Indigenous outreach. Cindy is looking forward to advancing her expertise in groundwater remediation and protection as an MASc candidate in the Morwick G360 Groundwater Research Institute.

Calvin Veenkamp

MASc Candidate, School of Engineering 

Calvin has a BASc from the University of Waterloo’s Honours Environmental Engineering program, specializing in pollution treatment and control. He has completed coop terms in a wide variety of fields including automotive manufacturing, geotechnical consulting, research on invasive sea snails in the Netherlands, environmental management at a cement factory, water taking permitting for the Ontario government (PTTW), and groundwater monitoring and remediation. His coop terms sparked an interest in the field of groundwater remediation. Calvin is excited to further develop his knowledge and field experience during his time as a student with Morwick G360.

Zachary Walker

MASc Candidate, School of Engineering

Zack completed his Honours BSc in Earth/Environmental Systems and Human Geography at the University of Toronto, where he participated in field work and research focusing on glacial geomorphology and sediment transport mechanisms along the Oak Ridges Moraine. This sparked an interest in groundwater remediation and aquifer characterization, which lead him to become a MASc candidate at the Morwick G360 Groundwater Research Institute. He hopes his time with the group will expose him to novel techniques and methods in contaminant hydrogeology research.

Michelle Leahey

MASc Candidate, School of Engineering

Michelle has recently completed a Bachelor of Science in Earth and Environmental Sciences from McMaster University. Michelle is looking forward to expanding her knowledge of contaminant hydrogeology and wishes to contribute meaningful advances to the field.

Cameron Myshok

MASc Student, School of Environmental Sciences

Cameron completed his Honours BSc in Environmental Science at the University of Windsor. His undergraduate research led him to developing a 1-D reactive transport model to investigate the hydrogeochemical impact of landfill leachate entering an underlying aquifer. As a MASc student with Morwick G360, he hopes to advance field methods for monitoring and remediating contaminated groundwater.
