I have conducted two short term studies so far. The first is using a weighing lysimeter to measure evapotranspiration at a bioretention cell in Vaughan, Ontario. The second is studying the soil and hydrologic properties of a system of old bioretention cells in southern Ontario and why they are “failing”. My research interests are bioretention cells (or rain gardens) and how existing older sites are functioning in the long term, and what factors have led to that. Exact PhD proposal forthcoming… but contact me if you’re interested in learning more!
