Young-Jin Park, PhD - Director of R&D

Dr. Park is the Director of R&D at Aquanty Inc. and an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Waterloo. He received his B.Sc. (1996) and M.Sc. (1998) degrees in Geology, and PhD (2002) in Earth and Environmental Sciences, all from the Seoul National University in South Korea. He moved to the University of Waterloo in 2002 as a post-doctoral fellow where he was a member of the development group for integrated groundwater and surface water flow and heat/solute transport (i.e. HydroGeoSphere). Dr. Park’s major contributions to HGS include: increased sophistication of the conceptual model in terms of groundwater/surface water interactions; implementation of advanced numerical techniques for temporal and spatial discretization to improve simulation performance and accuracy; and the development of a direct steady state simulation of the non-linear equations using integral transformation.
