Our Research

We study hydrogeological and geomorphological processes using a combination of analytical mathematical models, numerical simulations, and field work. We particularly focus on karst terrains, where dissolution of the rock plays a major role in the evolution of landscapes, the formation of caves, and, ultimately, the routing of groundwater. Prospective students and postdocs are encouraged to contact Matt Covington to discuss possible opportunities.
