Post Doctoral Fellows

Hyun-Kwon (Duncan) Do

Postdoctoral Fellow

Hyun-Kwon (Duncan) recently got a PhD degree from Korea University in Earth and Environmental Sciences and moved from South Korea to Canada in mid-January, 2021. During his PhD program, he was involved in more than 10 research projects including the suggestion of MMV strategy for CO2 storage, the assessment of groundwater contamination, and the evaluation of natural background levels in groundwater chemistry. Because of his experiences in various projects, although he is a hydrochemist, he is also interested in an interdisciplinary approach to investigating environmental issues.

Interests: Yoga is the only exercise Duncan does. He likes watching sports (Soccer, Football, Basketball, Baseball), and he wants to try climbing and swimming. He loves travelling with his wife.

Olenka Forde

Postdoctoral Fellow

Olenka Forde is a hydrogeochemist with expertise in gas transport and reaction processes in the subsurface. In 2019, Olenka completed her Doctor of Philosophy under the guidance of Prof. Uli Mayer at the University of British Columbia. Her research uses large-scale field experiments to characterize the subsurface transport and fate of methane leaking from oil and gas wells. After completing her Ph.D., Olenka moved to BGC Engineering Inc., where she worked on hydrogeochemical characterization of water quality at mine sites. As a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Morwick G360 group, Olenka will use her expertise to contribute to various site investigations focusing on source water protection.
