Research


I perform research in the geoenvironmental subfield of geological engineering, focusing on processes in shallow, heterogeneous, geologic environments in Earth's Critical Zone that govern aquifer recharge and groundwater quality. I endeavor to use knowledge gained from my research to develop and implement engineering solutions for maintaining and enhancing groundwater quantity and quality while fostering sustainable development within a wide range of geoenvironmental challenges facing society.

Below are some recent studies for which I was the Principal Investigator at the U.S. Geological Survey. Current research interests at the University of Mississippi include data-driven and physics-based simulation, critical zone processes, contaminant transport and fate, biogeochemistry, cyanobacterial toxins, and green infrastructure.
