Exploring the interface between the earth, fresh water and the ocean
My research group is interested in understanding how physical hydrologic processes influence water quality and movement especially at the margin between terrestrial and marine environments. We investigate how surface water and groundwater interact, how fresh and saltwater mix near the coast, and the evolution of chemistry in these waters. We are especially interested in the resiliency of fresh water resources in the face of a changing world. We work on several specific interdisciplinary research projects, within which we conduct field and lab experiments coupled with innovative computer models.
I am always looking for highly motivated graduate students interesting in pursuing hydrogeology research in a collaborative environment.
