I am an applied geophysicist with an interest in using geophysical tools under field conditions to investigate hydrological, permafrost and biogeoscience research questions. The areas that I am currently focused on are:

  1. Permafrost hydrology
  2. Optimizing the function of Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR)
  3. The hydrologic link between organic soils and the carbon cycle
