Keywords: hydrogeology, groundwater, hydrogeology, hydrology, recharge, regional groundwater flow

Professional Interests

Estimation of recharge to regional aquifer systems, delineation and interactions of groundwater flow systems; stream-aquifer interaction in semi-arid environments; contaminant transport through the subsurface under saturated and partially saturated conditions; spatial and temporal variations in groundwater quality and chemistry. Current research includes hydrogeology and hydrogeochemisty of regional groundwater flow systems and their interaction; infiltration of ephemeral stream flows; application of chloride mass balance to estimation of ground water recharge in arid environments.

Research Areas

  • Hydrology of the Unsaturated Zone
  • Hydrogeological Controls on Availability and Quality of Ground Water
  • Global Environmental Hydrology
  • Integrated Watershed System
