I have active research programs examining the reactivity and permeability of granular iron used for groundwater remediation (permeable reactive barriers), and other in situ remediation technologies such as denitrification with a nutrient injection wall. I am also developing methods of characterizing porous media in situ, such as the direct measurement of groundwater velocity with point velocity probe (PVP), the in-well PVP and the streambed PVP. These projects offer opportunities for graduate studies in hydrogeology with emphases on site characterization, groundwater remediation, and fate and transport of contaminants in groundwater.

Research interests:
