Bio/Research

The research program focuses on the use of natural and engineered biological systems for environmental control, with application to the problems of urban and semi-urban stormwater runoff, and the treatment and discharge of wastewater from small-scale unserviced areas.

Current and recent projects include the use of constructed subsurface flow treatment wetlands and biological filters for stormwater quality management; assessment of the eco-toxicological issues associated with stormwater treatment facilities; detoxification of stormwater detention pond sediments by natural biological leaching; use of constructed subsurfa

Many of these projects are conducted at the field scale, and are carried out in collaboration with other environmental scientists and engineers. Dr. Anderson is a co-principal investigator in the Queen's/National Water Research Institute Stormwater Quality Enhancement Group; a co-principal investigator in the Fudan-Queen's Co-laboratory of Environmental Research on Urbanization; and principal investigator of the Queen's Natural FLOWS Research Group.
