Current Research and Scholarly InterestsResearch
As a hydrogeologist, my research involves the study of water resources and water security with emphasis on groundwater. Using lab and field data, our aim is to develop an understanding of fundamental aspects of the transport of water and contaminants, and to investigate regional water resources systems. We have developed simulation-based planning tools to aid in sustainable agricultural and urban water management in the US, Mexico, India, and Jordan. With my colleagues, we have initiated the Global Freshwater Initiative, which studies water resources vulnerability problems throughout the world. During the past 14 years, our field investigations have focused on the interactions between groundwater and patterns of vegetation in studies of both meadow and salt-marsh ecohydrology. Scales of physical processes of interest extend from the domain of small pores to vast regional subsurface flow environments. Although driven by observations and data, we develop conceptual and quantitative models to rigorously understand physical processes, make predictions, and explore the impacts of new water management policies, such as taxes, quota, and markets. Such models enhance our understanding of groundwater flow behavior and provide the means to better manage water resources.
I teach courses for graduate and undergraduate students involving principles and methods used in physical and contaminant hydrogeology. In addition, I run a seminar series that exposes students to a variety of multidisciplinary topics involving hydrology.

Ph.D. Student in Geophysics
BioIan is a 3rd year Ph.D. Student in the Environmental Geophysics group lead by Rosemary Knight. He is interested in finding ways to use geophysical methods to reduce uncertainty in groundwater systems. Currently, his research focuses on applying airborne electromagnetic data to investigate the mechanisms and extent of seawater intrusion.

Kristen Marie Green
Ph.D. Student in Environment and Resources
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsKristen's research interests are sustainable marine resource planning for Alaskan communities. She seeks to understand how communities that are highly dependent on coastal resources will adapt and maintain resiliency in the face of climate change.
