Karl is an associate professor at the University of Saskatchewan and member of APEGS.
He holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Manitoba, a Master of Applied Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Toronto and a PhD in Environmental Engineering from the Technical University of Berlin. Before his appointment at the University of Saskatchewan, Karl was with the Manitoba Water Stewardship as a hydrologic modelling research engineer where one of his research topics involved monitoring and modelling river ice processes along the Red, Assiniboine and Dauphin Rivers.
His knowledge on river ice processes aided Red River Floodway operations, the Ice Jam Mitigation Program along the lower Red River and flood risk management of the Lake St. Martin/Dauphin River System. He has also extended his portfolio of river ice work and research to include the Slave River in the Northwest Territories, the Peace and Athabasca rivers in Alberta, and the South Saskatchewan and Qu'Appelle rivers in Saskatchewan.
