Euan Reavie

Position and Focus

Dr. Reavie is the Assistant Director for NRRI’s Center for Water and the Environment. Euan and his research team pursue research in applied aquatic studies on freshwater ecosystems, evaluating water quality issues. Routine work focuses on the use of algae as indicators of environmental changes. Their laboratory is fully equipped for research on biological and chemical indicators of water quality, and paleolimnology, the study of environmental trends through the analysis of sediment profiles. Techniques include high-resolution microscopy, digital imaging, laboratory processing and field sampling.

Recent studies include:


Postdoctoral, Geology, University of Toronto, 1998 - 2000
Ph.D., Biology, Queen's University, 1994 – 1997
M.S., Biology, Queen's University, 1992 – 1994
B.S., Biology, Queen's University, 1988 – 1992
