My research group is interested in understanding how physical hydrologic processes influence water quality and movement through watersheds. We study how water moves through paired surface water and groundwater systems, heat tracing in hydrologic systems, and interactions between the energy and water cycles. We work on several specific interdisciplinary research projects, within which we used field experiments coupled with computer modeling experiments.
