Emmanuelle Arnaud holds a Masters degree in Geography and a Ph.D. in Geology. She is a glacial geologist with expertise in the field-based analysis of glacial sediments and sedimentary rocks in Canada, Norway, Scotland, and Alaska. Her research is focused on identifying physical sedimentary characteristics to reconstruct past glaciations and to document and predict the nature and extent of these glacial deposits for various environmental and resource management applications. Dr. Arnaud has been a leader of multidisciplinary and multi-institutional projects that combine various proxies to reconstruct past environmental changes in glaciated regions. She also leads a study on subsurface heterogeneity of glacial sediments and its impact on groundwater recharge and contaminant transport as well as a study related to non-point source pollution of groundwater (specifically nitrate and pathogens) in agricultural settings. Dr. Arnaud is currently an Associate Professor in the School of Environmental Sciences and provides research direction to G360 – The Centre for Applied Groundwater Research at the University of Guelph.
