B.Sc. Hons , M.Sc., Ph.D., Carleton.

Research Interests

Dr. Allen's research focuses on hydrogeology with particular emphasis on groundwater resource evaluation and hydrogeological modeling. Her current research focuses on climate change impacts on groundwater systems, groundwater resources in mountainous and coastal regions, and low temperature geothermal (aquifer thermal energy storage) systems and thermal modeling. She also has related interests in environmental isotopes and geochemistry, and hydrogeophysics. Dr. Allen supervises graduate students who wish to pursue careers in hydrogeology or environmental geoscience. The application of GIS methods and computational hydrogeology to analyzing field data is emphasized.
