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.
