Collaborating for cleaner water

Dr. Stephanie Melles, PhD, Department of Chemistry and Biology and Dr. Claire Oswald, PhD, Department of Geography and Environmental Studies.

Dr. Stephanie Melles, PhD, Department of Chemistry and Biology and Dr. Claire Oswald, PhD, Department of Geography and Environmental Studies, are using complementary research approaches at Ryerson Urban Water (RUW) to study the health of urban water systems in Toronto and the GTA with a focus on improving water quality and conservation.
 
Dr. Melles and Dr. Oswald are just two of the celebrated researchers that will be working inside Ryerson University’s new external,Centre for Urban Innovation (CUI). Opening in 2018, CUI is a state-of-the-art cross-disciplinary research facility that will bring together researchers working in urban energy, infrastructure, transportation and logistics, urban water, food and nutrition and data analysis. CUI is an example of Ryerson’s ongoing commitment to excellence in research, innovation, commercialization, and city-building.
 
At Ryerson, we invest deeply in our researchers. We provide them with the support they need to solve relevant and real­-world problems that help our environment and our economy.
