Current Research: My main area of expertise is the application of groundwater flow and transport models to hydrogeological problems. Current research is focused on the use of groundwater models to quantify groundwater fluxes, including areally distributed recharge and discharge to rivers, lakes and wetlands. Our field area is at an NSF-sponsored research LTER (Long Term Ecological Research) site in beautiful Northern Wisconsin, an area rich in lakes and forests. Our study site is the Trout Lake Basin. There is a permanent research station and housing for researchers located on the shores of the lake. Click to find out more about the LTER project.
