Dr. Bernie Kueper
Dr. Kueper is a contaminant hydrogeologist with expertise in the areas of soil and groundwater contamination, groundwater flow, site assessment, and subsurface remediation. He received his Ph.D. in hydrogeology from the University of Waterloo in 1989 and joined the faculty at Queen’s University in 1990 where he is employed at the rank of Professor. Dr. Kueper’s research program and consulting activities are focused on the behavior and remediation of a variety of constituents in soil and groundwater including organic chemicals such as chlorinated solvents, oils, fuels, coal tar, creosote and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), chlorides, as well as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in unconsolidated deposits and fractured rock. His research has included performing field experiments, laboratory experiments, and numerical simulation studies related to the behavior and remediation of contaminants. Dr. Kueper is the lead editor of the recently published textbook “Chlorinated Solvent Source Zone Remediation”. He has provided professional short courses and training seminars on the topics of ground water flow and contaminant hydrogeology to various regulatory agencies and industry groups worldwide.
