Other Information: 

Jeffrey J. McDonnell joined the University of Saskatchewan in 2012. Prior to his appointment with the School of Environment and Sustainability and the Global Institute for Water Security, Jeff was the Richardson Chair in Watershed Science and University Distinguished Professor of Hydrology at Oregon State University. His research focuses on new ways to measure, model and understand streamflow generation processes. Jeff has co-authored ~200 articles on watershed hydrology and co-edited the Elsevier textbook “Isotope Tracers in Catchment Hydrology”. He has served as the Senior Advisory Editor of the “Encyclopedia of Hydrological Sciences”, published by John Wiley and Sons and is currently Editor-in-Chief of the IAHS Book Series “Benchmark Papers in Hydrology”. Jeff is a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union and the International Water Academy and recipient of several awards, including the Dalton Medal from the European Geophysical Union, the Gordon Warwick Award from the British Geomorphological Research Group, the Nystrom Award from the Association of American Geographers and a D.Sc. from the University of Canterbury. Jeff was the 2011 Birdsall-Driess Distinguished Lecturer for the Geological Society of America and 2012 Borland Lecturer for AGU Hydrology Days.
