David Rudolph, Ph.D., P.Eng., is a Professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Waterloo. He specializes and teaches in the areas of regional hydrogeology and groundwater protection and management. His research group combines watershed-scale field monitoring with numerical modeling strategies to resolve issues related to water balances, impacts of diffuse source contaminants and groundwater-surface water interaction phenomena. Rudolph has participated extensively with municipal authorities in groundwater development and management projects with specific focus on assessing the impacts to water quality from agricultural land-use practices and evaluating performance of Beneficial Management Practices. He was the 2010 recipient of NGWA’s M. King Hubbert Award for contributions to the field of hydrogeology, was the 2013 NGWA Darcy Lecturer in Ground Water Science and is the recipient of the 2020 IAH Robert N.
