I have mentored a couple undergraduate students in the past but am new to mentoring.


My specialty is data acquisition for groundwater and hydrometeorological applications, especially remote environmental sensing and aquifer characterization.

Other research interests include numerical modeling of hydraulics and heat transport as well as evaluating the functionality of springs and riparian areas.
