I have active research programs examining the reactivity and permeability of granular iron used for groundwater remediation (permeable reactive barriers), and other in situ remediation technologies such as denitrification with a nutrient injection wall. I am also developing methods of characterizing porous media in situ, such as the direct measurement of groundwater velocity with point velocity probe (PVP), the in-well PVP and the streambed PVP. These projects offer opportunities for graduate studies in hydrogeology with emphases on site characterization, groundwater remediation, and fate and transport of contaminants in groundwater.
