DR. PASCALE CHAMPAGNE
Associate Professor, Department of Civil Engineering
Dr. Pascale Champagne - a leading researcher in environmental engineering - is developing a process to extract useable organic materials from waste biomass, such as livestock manure and forestry residue, and convert them into valuable chemicals and sources of energy, like biofuel.
Aiming to develop alternate technologies and sustainable environmental practices, Professor Champagne is also working to engineer better processes for waste management to minimize the impact of municipal, agricultural and industrial activities.
It's cutting-edge research that provides sustainable and economically viable solutions to reduce air, soil and water contamination.

Amir Fam, Ph.D., P.Eng.
Assistant Professor and Canada Research
Dr. Amir Fam holds a Tier II Canada Research Chair and was awarded a Queen's University Chancellor's Research Award. He received his M.Sc. (1996) and Ph.D. (2000) in Structural Engineering from the University of Manitoba. After spending two years as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate and Lecturer at North Carolina State University, he joined the Civil Engineering Department at Queen's in 2002. Dr. Fam is the author of more than 35 refereed technical publications in journals and conference proceedings. Dr. Fam has conducted large scale experimental modeling of two unique bridges, each considered to be the first of its kind: the Taylor Bridge (Manitoba), using girders fully prestressed and reinforced for shear by carbon-FRP, and the Route 40 Bridge (Virginia), using concrete-filled glass-FRP tubes for piers without the need for steel rebar.

Richard Brachman, Ph.D., P.Eng.
Assistant Professor, Department of Civil Engineering
Dr. Brachman earned his PhD in Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering from the University of Western Ontario in 1999. Since joining Queen's in 2001, he has been very active in developing world class experimental facilities to permit physical testing of pipes and other buried structures that are the unseen portion of the infrastructure supporting our cities. These efforts include the recently completed Large-scale Geotechnical Testing Laboratory at Queen's West Campus, and current construction of a new Geosynthetics Durability Facility, both funded by the Canadian Foundation for Innovation and the Ontario Innovation Trust. He is the recipient of a Premier's Research Excellence Award from the Government of Ontario and a Teaching Award from his undergraduate students in Civil Engineering.

Yves Filion, PhD, PEng
I am part of the Environmental Engineering group in the Department of Civil Engineering at Queen’s University. As a member of this group, I spend a great deal of time thinking about how water systems in rural and urban areas can be designed, rehabilitated, and optimized to have the least impact on the natural environment and to pose the least risk to human health.

Professor Hoult’s research interests include the use of fibre reinforced polymers for retrofitting and reinforcing of concrete structures, testing and modeling of reinforced concrete and structural health monitoring. One of the challenges faced by society as a whole is how to use resources more efficiently and effectively.
