Elodie Passeport

Associate Professor

Canada Research Chair in Environmental Engineering and Stable Isotopes


Research Interests






Professor Elodie Passeport's research involves developing analytical tools based on stable isotope to study the behavior of organic chemicals in surface water environments such as rivers and lakes. Her research context spans from contaminated groundwater, wastewaters, industrial and agricultural effluents, to radiological pollution.

Results gained through this research is used by industrial partners to assess risk factors when contaminants enter a site, and to develop comprehensive remediation schemes that can more fully address environmental and health requirements.
