  • Research/Focus Areas
    • Mathematical modeling of flow and transport processes
    • Effects of scale and spatial variability on hydrologic response
  • Biography
    My research interests are in the broad area of measurements and modeling of hydrologic and environmental systems. As such, I have worked on a variety of projects, including developing subsurface hydrocarbon measurement techniques, analyzing the effects of tillage and reconsolidation on soil-water retention characteristics, exploring the effects of scale and spatial variability of soil properties on hydrologic response, and developing numerical methods for routing discontinuous surface water flows over infiltrating surfaces.
