Dr. Stadnyk is Tier II Canada Research Chair in Hydrologic Modelling and an Associate Professor with the Department of Geography at the University of Calgary and Professional Engineer registered in the Provinces of Manitoba and Alberta.

Her research looks at continental scale water supply under climate change through three main foci: development of new data networks to support hydrologic modelling, development of tracer-aided hydrologic modelling tools, and quantifying risk-based uncertainty for operational prediction of climate change impacts. Applications of her work include analysis of changing pan-Arctic water supplies under climate change and associated impacts to freshwater-Arctic marine interfaces. She specializes in using integrated modelling approaches, specifically water isotope tracers and isotope-enabled models, to improve regional hydrologic process detection, diagnosis of change, model calibration, and quantification (reduction) of model uncertainty.

Internationally, she is the Chief Scientific Investigator (CSI) on a Coordinated Research Project to improve global water balance estimation and the newly elected Vice President of the International Association for Hydrological Sciences Tracer Commission. In Canada, she is lead investigator responsible for several projects within the Global Water Futures, FloodNet and BaySys Research Networks, contributing to the development of new tools for simulating continental Canadian water supply. Over the past decade, she has worked with industry on short-term operational flood forecasting, and long-term water supply projections under climate change, including hydrologic inflows for infrastructure design. She is the current Chair of the Canadian Geophysical Union’s Hydrology Section Isotope Tracer Committee, and Board member for the Alberta Canadian Water Resources Association.
