Noah is a PhD Candidate in Environmental Geophysics at Stanford University. Noah graduated from Mcgill University in Montreal in 2012 with a joint major in physics and geophysics. He then worked in airborne geophysical surveying for three and a half years, using magnetics, gravity, and frequency domain electromagnetic methods to map geological regions around the world. He now is working with airborne time domain electromagnetic geophysical methods in combination with other geophysical data to study groundwater flow and recharge in the central valley in California.
