Meet Zack Arno, a Master's student in the Hydrologic Sciences program. He is currently working on a research project in Liberia, West Aftrica conducting hydrogeological investigations for the driling of approximately 50 wells. 

What brought you to DRI?


I was interested in the research and projects that my advisor, Dr. Apambire, is involved with as well as the general research and mission of the Center for International Water and Sustainability (CIWAS).

What are you studying?

Hydrogeology

What research projects are you working on? And who at DRI are you working with?

I am currently working with my advisor, Dr. Apambire, on a research project in Liberia, West Africa. As a part of the Ebola Emergency Response Project in Liberia, DRI has won a bid to conduct the hydrogeological investigations for the drilling of approximately 50 wells in close proximity to health centers.

What are your short-term and long-term goals while at DRI?

zack arno3My short term goals while at DRI would be to get out into the field as much as possible. My long term goals while at DRI would be to produce a great thesis, publish papers, and continue to collaborate with DRI and CIWAS on international water research.

Tell us about yourself. What do you do for fun?

I like to travel, play banjo, cook, hike, brew beer, snowboard, read and look at maps!
