Dr. Stefano Normani, P.Eng.

Stefano Normani Dr. Stefano Normani is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and a member of the Environmental Modelling and Analysis Group within the department.

He has been involved in litigation support work related to legacy groundwater contamination in both Canada and the United States. Dr. Normani is involved in research to gain a better understanding and characterization of deep groundwater flow systems in both fractured crystalline rock and sedimentary basins. Currently, he is investigating the impacts of paleoclimate perturbations, such as glaciation and deglaciation, on deep groundwater flow systems.

He has over 15 years of experience in environmental modelling, specializing in groundwater flow and contaminant fate and transport in porous and discretely fractured media, as well as modelling of flow and contaminant fate and transport in water distribution systems. Uncertainty and sensitivity analyses, and heuristic optimization are applied as needed. Dr. Normani has extensive experience in the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), databases, and visualization software applied to the analysis, interpretation, visualization, and synthesis of data, and numerical modelling results. He has developed numerous pre- and post-processing software tools for data conversion and translation, visualization, synthesis, and analysis.
