Working with our Community Development team in Waterloo, Francine is an environmental contaminant scientist with over 25 years of experience. 

In her field, Francine is best known for developing innovative solutions to contamination problems through her PhD research and collaborative discussions with government and private organizations. Her role at Stantec is centered around developing two main services for clients—first, she works on finding beneficial use alternatives for contaminated soils and sediment as financially and environmentally sustainable alternatives to landfill disposal. Second, Francine applies forensics techniques to identify petroleum hydrocarbon (PHC) and polyaromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) sources, weathering, mobility and bioavailability studies. A key component of this approach includes Francine’s Biogenic Interference Calculation (BIC) Scale, which eliminates false PHC detections caused by the presence of natural organic matter in soils and compost. These forensics techniques allow Stantec to develop timely and cost-effective site remediation strategies for our private and government clients.

Outside of work, Francine enjoys canoeing with her family and attending her kids hockey games.
