PhD Candidate, visiting reseacher

Reynold is originally from Toronto. He completed a BSc (2009) and MSc (2012) at the University of Waterloo in Earth Science specializing in hydrogeology.

His master’s thesis led to Chow et al. (2016), a publication in the Journal of Contaminant Hydrology entitled “Delineating baseflow contribution areas for streams – A model and methods comparison.”

After his MSc, he worked at BGC Engineering Inc., a geotechnical engineering consulting company based out of Vancouver for 3 years. There he gained experience in hydrogeologic site investigations, including core logging, packer testing, monitoring well installations, and hydraulic response testing (i.e., slug tests, pumping tests). He worked for mining clients with projects in Northern British Columbia (William’s Lake), Northern Ontario (Sudbury), the Alberta Oil Sands, Yukon Territory and Alaska. He specialized in numerical groundwater modelling, using MODFLOW (Visual MODFLOW & Groundwater Vistas), FeFlow, Watflow, and HydroGeoSphere.

After obtaining his Professional Geoscientist designation (British Columbia and Ontario), he started his PhD at the Universities of Tübingen and Stuttgart in October 2015. In February 2018 he joined the G360 Group at the University of Guelph, for a Canadian research stay as part of his PhD, to complete a modelling study on the Eramosa Bedrock River Field Site, nearby Guelph, Ontario..
