Barret Kurylyk - Faculty


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Resource Engineering and the Canada Research Chair ( Tier II ) in Coastal Water Resources. My research areas are physical hydrology and hydrogeology with a focus on coastal and submarine environments and environmental heat transfer. Most research projects include a combination of field work and mathematical modeling. If you are looking for a graduate student position and are passionate about water resources issues, enjoy working outside, and are interested in developing your quantitative hydrogeology/hydrology abilities, please contact me directly.
