Mathematical modeling of flow and transport processes
Effects of scale and spatial variability on hydrologic response
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.
