Christianne has 12 years of experience working with supercritical fluids. Under the supervision of Warren Stiver and Selma Guigard, her research has focused on the extraction of hydrocarbons from drilling waste using supercritical Carbon Dioxide through both lab-scale and pilot-scale operation.
Through the Co-operative Education in Engineering Program, Christianne has over a year of oilfield-based work experience including abandoned well remediation, brine water spill reclamation, cathodic protection, and oil well production optimization throughout Alberta and Manitoba for Chevron Canada Resources and Marathon Oil. Additionally, Christianne spent 3 years with EPCOR Water Services as a capital project manager in Water Plants Engineering, which included research for technology development to treat oilsands produced water.
