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. For further details on my more recent research, please see my ResearchGate Profile and my University of Mississippi Research Profile.
