How do you manage, quantify, understand, utilize, conserve, sustain water resources?

Natural environments present many technical challenges.

What we do

We use experience and leverage computation to find solutions.

Our Team

We've worked hard to build a team of diverse, well educated, and experienced professionals. We've executed a wide variety of projects, and are continually recruiting bright, up-and-coming professionals to provide enlightening solutions to water management.

Ryan MacDonald, Ph.D.


Dr. Ryan MacDonald has been conducting research and working in the hydrological sciences for over ten years. He is a research consultant and an adjunct Assistant Professor. His work is focused on catchment-scale hydrological processes and aquatic ecosystems. He has played a lead role in the development and application of process-based hydrological models for mountain watersheds and led several field-based research projects. He has also led multi stakeholder projects on river management using large-scale models. He has worked on a range of projects looking at the impacts of changes in climate and land use on hydrometeorology in mountain environments. Dr. MacDonald has also led cumulative effects assessments as well as watershed-scale analyses using integrated modelling tools. Through his work, he has published numerous peer-reviewed research articles and co-authored two books. He continues to work in academia while providing services to clients from private and public sectors.

Devin Cairns, M.Sc., P.Geol.

Hydrogeologist & Programmer

Devin specializes in dynamic water-related problem solving and communication tools. His experience includes pragmatic approaches to the understanding of natural watershed conditions, forecasting system stresses, profiling spatial risk, and understanding cumulative effects using integrated computer programming/modelling with knowledge in hydrogeology, hydrology, geomorphology, and GIS.

“Everything must be made as simple as possible. But not simpler.”
Albert Einstein

Matthew Chernos, M.Sc.

Hydrologist & Programmer

Matthew is a Hydrologist and Glaciologist with a core focus in alpine hydrology, environmental change, river geomorphology, scientific programming, and science communication. He provides pragmatic and scientifically rigorous solutions to water-related issues. His work relies on a strong analytical approach based on novel statistical and physically-based methods to model hydrologic processes.

Jeffrey McKenzie, Ph.D.


Jeff is a professor at McGill University and a seasoned hydrogeologist. His experience includes extensive research in groundwater, especially pertaining to cryohydrogeology, the study of the occurance and movement of groundwater in cold places, and how these systems are affected by climate change. He is known for developing novel data collection methods and creating dynamic groundwater models for many populated and remote regions in North and South America.

“The early days of GIS were very lonely. No-one knew what it meant.”
Roger Tomlinson, Father of GIS

Colin Langhorn, M.Sc.

Geospatial Scientist

Colin has strong personal and career interests in food and water security challenges under changing climatic conditions. He has a detailed knowledge of crop and water modelling under changing climate conditions, involving the application of advanced technical skills in Remote Sensing, GIS, and Computer Science. Through previous work with different public and private organizations, Colin has acquired the ability to develop, maintain and optimize geospatial databases using various software tools in order to optimize productivity and performance.
