Understanding and Sustaining the Environment & Energy Systems

[Queen's University Biological Station]

Queen’s University Biological Station (QUBS), with its more than 3,000 hectares, plays an integral role in attracting researchers and students.

Human well-being is dependent upon healthy environments, understanding the impact of human activities upon ecosystems, the adoption and development of renewable energy sources and sustainable energy systems, and the implementation of informed energy and environmental policy.

Queen’s researchers are providing new insights into global climate change, human interactions, urbanization, and industrial activity, and Queen’s is emerging as a national leader in connecting this research to policy-making, provincially and nationally.

Themes in this area include:

The workplace environment and occupational health

  • Julian Barling (Business) - transformational leadership and employee well-being

Centres/Institutes include: The Centre for Law in the Contemporary Workplace

The sociocultural, legal, and economic aspects of healthy environments

  • Bill Nelson (Biology) - bringing together mathematical and experimental biology

  • Una D'Elia (Art) - revealing fundamental issues about art and the natural world

  • Ugo Piomelli (Engineering) - applying the equations to solve real-world problems

See: School of Environmental Studies

  • Shelley Arnott (Biology) - investigating environmental stressors in Ontario lakes

  • Peter Harrison (Policy Studies) - exploring the human dimension of the north and south poles

  • John Smol (Biology), Canada Research Chair in Environmental Change
