Research

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

Teaching

I currently teach a seminar in Hydrogeophysics and in the future I will offer undergraduate courses in environmental geophysics and field geophysical methods among others.

Student Opportunities

Students with backgrounds in geophysics, hydrology, environmental science, engineering or related fields are encouraged to contact me via email to find out about masters and doctoral research opportunities.   I am open to discuss how students may fit into my current projects or how I may be able to support projects of the students’ own design.
