Teaching Philosophy & Focus

My teaching centers around water resources, groundwater, contaminant transport and engineering geology. I also enjoy teaching introductory courses in environmental geoscience and physical geology. 

I like the challenges of teaching online courses. My online courses evolved over the last 10 years as new technologies became available.

Research Areas of Interest

My research interests include groundwater flow, water chemistry and contaminant transport. Groundwater flow projects include fracture bedrock aquifers and aquifer storage and recovery. 

Water chemistry projects include geochemical modeling and nano-scale reactions between water, mineral surfaces, and chemical contaminants. 

I collaborate with other researchers from my department, the Department of Physics, and other universities.
