Dr. Champagne is currently a full Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering (with cross appointment to Chemical Engineering) at Queen’s University and the Director of the Beaty Water Research Centre. Before coming to Queen’s in 2005, Dr. Champagne was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Carleton University, where she also completed her PhD. She also recently became the director of the interdisciplianr Beaty Water Research Centre at Queen’s University in 2017. She has been the Canada Research Chair in (Tier II) in Bioresources Engineering since 2012. Lastly, she was recently awarded the NSERC Brockhouse Canada Prize for Interdisciplinary Research in Science and Engineering, for Wholly Green: Sustainability through a Systems Approach.
Dr. Pascale Champagne’s research focuses on the development of alternate water and waste management strategies and environmentally sustainable approaches with a focus on integrated bioresource management. Her research activities are interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary and have commonality with the fields of environmental and chemical engineering, biology and green chemistry; hence, she collaborates and has evolved synergistic relationships with a number of researchers in these fields to develop new integrated bioresource management practices, to introduce alternate aqueous and solid waste management approaches, and to create unique opportunities for the bioenergy and bioproducts sectors.
