Sam Jacobson

MSc Candidate, School of Environmental Sciences

Sam was born and raised in Pennsylvania, and graduated with a BSc in geology from Bucknell Univeristy in Lewisburg, PA. In his undergrad, Sam focused on developing a tracer that could be used to understand contaminant transport in well developed karst systems using 3-D printers and X-ray computed tomography. At G360 he hopes to expand his contaminant knowledge to include contaminant transport in fractured media, and field methods.

James Hommersen

MSc Candidate, School of Environmental Sciences

Formerly a Research Assistant with G360, James’ research focuses on evaluating the effects of agricultural contamination near a municipal pumping well using depth-discrete sampling in a shallow bedrock aquifer system.

Chrystyn Skinner

MSc Candidate, School of Environmental Sciences

Chrystyn completed her BSc in Environmental Earth Sciences at the University of Alberta. Her research focuses on an aquifer in Guelph, ON, where high-resolution hydrogeological characterization was completed to investigate the groundwater flow system surrounding a municipal supply well, and to inform the design of a 3-D monitoring network for evaluating potential impacts to drinking water resources.

Chris Morgan

MSc Candidate, School of Engineering

Chris graduated with a B.Sc. in geology from the University of Waterloo. At G³⁶⁰, Chris’s work is focused on combining traditional borehole data sets with outcrop photogrammetry to describe and model 3D fracture networks of a sandstone aquifer in central Wisconsin.

Nathan Glas

MSc Candidate, School of Engineering

Nathan completed his undergraduate degree in the Department of Earth Sciences at Dalhousie University with a focus in Geology and Environmental Geoscience. Nathan’s masters thesis focuses on conducting a baseline groundwater quality study in the northwest territories portion of the Liard Basin, with the goal of obtaining an understanding of the hydrochemistry, flow system and aquifer vulnerabilities.

Teresa Pilato

MSc Candidate, School of Engineering

Teresa is a recent graduate from the Colorado School of Mines with B.S. in Geophysical Engineering and has previously worked for the USGS with the Geomagnetism Program as an intern. She is pursuing a MASc in Water Resources Engineering with a focus in groundwater modelling.

Brent Redmond

MSc Candidate, School of Engineering

Brent recently completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Ottawa in Geology. He will be working with the G360 group as a research assistant for the summer, and then begin a MASc degree in the fall.
