I am an assistant professor in the Department of Geosciences at the University of Arkansas. I study karst hydrogeology and geomorphology as well as glacial hydrology. In this research I employ a quantitative, process-based approach, using a combination of analytical models, computer simulations, and field observations.

My areas of research interest include:

  • Modeling flow and transport in karst aquifers

  • Inverse modeling of karst conduit systems

  • Understanding the role of sediment transport and corresponding mechanical erosion in speleogenesis

  • CO2 dynamics in caves

  • Characterizing the variations in stream geochemistry and understanding the processes controlling them

  • Understanding the development and dynamics of glacial conduits
