Kerry MacQuarrie is a Professor of Civil Engineering and a Canada Research Chair in Groundwater-Surface Water Interactions at the University of New Brunswick. Dr. MacQuarrie is also a Fellow of the Canadian Rivers Institute, Coordinator of the Groundwater Studies Group at UNB, and has been a Researcher in the Canadian Water Network, the GEOIDE Research Network, and COMERN – Collaborative Mercury Research Network.
Dr. MacQuarrie has served as a member of the Executive Committee of the Hydrogeology Division for the Canadian Geotechnical Society, and the Board of Directors of the New Brunswick Environment Industry Association. He has also served as an Associate Editor of the Journal of Hydrology.
Dr. MacQuarrie’s research interests include the transport and fate of contaminants in the subsurface and the use of hydraulic, thermal, and geochemical information to understand groundwater-surface water interactions; riverbank filtration for safe drinking water supply; groundwater influences on cold-water fish habitat; groundwater-derived nitrogen loading to shallow estuaries; numerical modelling of groundwater flow and solute transport; and multi-component reactive transport modelling.
Dr. MacQuarrie holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of New Brunswick, and a Master of Science and a PhD in Earth Sciences (Hydrogeology) from the University of Waterloo. He is a Registered Member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of New Brunswick.
