Dawn Keim joined the Global Institute for Water Security in March 2014. She holds a PhD in hydrogeology from the University of Leeds (2013) and a MSc in Environmental Water Management from Cranfield University (2008) in the UK. Prior to joining the institute she was based out of Vancouver Island in British Columbia where she coordinated a regional government Drinking Water and Watershed Protection Program.
Dawn's research mainly focuses on physical investigations into groundwater recharge and unsaturated flow and transport processes. Her work combines field observations and modelling to characterize hydrological processes and predict impacts of climate and land use changes.
