Dr. Elizabeth Jamieson is a Senior Engineer for Canada’s hydrometric program (Water Survey of Canada), within Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC). Elizabeth is also an adjunct professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Ottawa. Elizabeth’s current role with ECCC is the national lead on hydrometric monitoring technology within the Water Survey of Canada (WSC), which is a program dedicated to collecting real-time and historical water level and flow data from a network of over 2000 hydrometric stations across Canada.

Elizabeth completed her Ph.D. in the Department on Civil Engineering at the University of Ottawa in 2011 under the supervision of Dr. Colin Rennie and Dr. Ronald Townsend. Her research interests include: experimental approaches to studying river morphodynamics and environmental hydraulics; advanced techniques and methods for hydrometric (surface water quantity) monitoring (such as hydroacoustics and large scale particle image velocimetry (LSPIV)); streamflow (discharge) uncertainty.
