Bryan Karney

Professor, Department of Civil Engineering, Environmental Section, University of Toronto  

Karney ImageBryan’s primary interests are in the design, analysis, operation and optimization of various water resource and energy systems are studied by Professor Karney. This includes prediction of physical and chemical transformations in hydrological systems and transformation of water quality and hydraulic parameters in open channel and pressurized flow systems. Infrastructure performance and evaluation is the key area of application of these topics and climate features prominently in these systems, both as a forcing function and as a challenge for climate change mitigation. The issues of electrical energy mix, and appropriate blends of conventional and sustainable energy supply mix, is a growing concern. Bryan has a deep interest in the social, behavioral and ethical dimensions of environmental systems.
