Our research group studies fundamental and applied hydrologic flow and transport processes. We are motivated by the pursuit of basic knowledge and the development of solutions to environmental and societal water issues.
Our research approach follows James Clerk Maxwell’s quote:
“Thus all the mathematical sciences are founded on relations between physical laws and laws of numbers, so that the aim of exact science is to reduce the problems of nature to the determination of quantities by operations with numbers.” (On Faraday’s Lines of Force, 1856)
Operations with numbers are most relevant when grounded on real-world observations. Thus, we integrate field and laboratory observations with computational and theoretical models, whatever form they may take.
