Dr. James R. Craig, P.Eng., is Canada Research Chair in Hydrologic Modelling and Analysis and Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Waterloo.  Professor Craig’s research focuses on the development of improved numerical and analytical methods for modeling groundwater, surface water, subsurface contaminant transport and the surface water/groundwater interface.

Current research addresses the development and assessment of robust numerical surface and subsurface simulation software and algorithms, fundamental and computational improvements to series solution methods and the analytic element method (AEM), novel applications of hybrid numerical-analytical solution approaches to complex local and regional problems in unsaturated and saturated flow systems.
