We develop and apply numerical, statistical, and field-based methods to investigate subsurface fluid flow, solute transport, and chemical reactions in soils, aquifers, and deep reservoirs. We work on techniques ranging from scaling theory, inverse methods, to hydrogeophysics. Research projects include aquifer characterization and modeling, surface/groundwater interaction, subsurface energy extraction, and deep waste disposal. Funding comes from the US National Science Foundation, Department of Energy, American Chemical Society (Petroleum Research Fund), Wyoming Water Development Commission, and UW School of Energy Resources. We collaborate with scientists and engineers at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Schlumberger, Colorado School of Mines, and at UW. Computing resources we access include clusers [ARCC] and supercomputers [NWSC].
