Research Collaborators


RIOT Technologies

RIOT technology is revolutionizing the way we acquire environmental monitoring data in remote areas. A Viatec 2019 award winner RIOT is partnering with the SMHCO to implement Low Power Wide Area Wireless (LPWAN) Sensing Networks for better improved data collection.

Carl Mitchell - University of Toronto

Dr. Carl Mitchell is one of the premier hydrology researchers in biogeochemical processes and contaminant fate and transport. His lab is home to the CFI and MRI-funded “Integrated Watershed Hydrology and Biogeochemistry Research Facility for the Study of Contaminant Transport and Transformation” and has been a key supporter of research at SMHCO.


Colin McCarter - McMaster University

Dr. McCarter's research focuses on hydrology and biogeochemistry. He has been working in SMHCO elucidating the biogeochemical transformation and transport of Mercury and other contaminants. Providing important information on relevant and highly dangerous risks to habitat and public drinking water, this research has much wider impacts on our society.


Rich Petrone - University of Waterloo

Dr Petrone's research is focused on improving understanding of soil-vegetation-atmosphere interactions in wetland and forest ecosystems. He runs the Hydrometeorology Research Group and is currently collaborating with Dr Ketcheson on oilsands reclamation research.


Maria Strack - University of Waterloo

Dr Strack studies the interaction between ecology, hydrology, biogechemistry, and soil properties in wetland ecosystems. She runs the Wetland Soils & Greenhouse Gas Exchange Lab and is a co-investigator with Dr Ketcheson on the soils and eco-hydrology component of the BERA project.


Greg McDermid - University of Calgary

Dr McDermid is a geospatial scientist who works to connects remote sensing, environmental monitoring and ecology. He runs the Applied Geospatial Research Group and is also a co-investigator with Dr Ketcheson and Dr Strack on the BERA project.
