Daniella Rempe is a hydrologist and geomorphologist interested in understanding how the evolution of the near-surface environment drives hydrologic and ecologic processes. She uses a diverse set of hydrological and geophysical field techniques to probe the interior of hillslopes to understand how surface and subsurface processes influence water resources to vegetation, rivers, and the atmosphere. Learn more about Daniella's research interests here.

Daniella will join the faculty of the Jackson School of Geosciences at the University of Texas at Austin as an assistant professor in the Fall of 2016.Enthusiastic and motivated students at all levels who are passionate about understanding the intersection of rock, water, and life are encouraged to contact Daniella about opportunities to join the research group.

I study the systematic behavior of weathered bedrock in sedimentary bedrock and how weathering relates to the magnitude and distribution of water that can be stored in hillslopes using a variety of geophysical and geochemical techniques. My work takes place in arid hillslopes in California, where forest fires are prone and the impact of understanding near-surface water dynamics is primordial.

I am interested in studying the potential effects of ecological stresses, specifically drought, disturbance, and salinity, in forest ecosystems at tree-level scale and how can this understanding informs a global perspective. Moreover, I want to determine how forests' ecosystems react to more frequent and severe ecological stress events due to climate change. I use different measurements at tree-level and based on...

Prospective Students (Graduate or Undergraduate)
Thank you for your interest in joining my research group! There are currently opportunities at all levels beginning in the Fall of 2016. I welcome the opportunity to work with students who have a strong academic record, quantitative skills, research and writing experience, and unquenchable curiosity and creativity. Our group focuses on spatial and temporal patterns of water movement in the near surface. If you're interested in joining the lab, please contact me directly ( with a CV and a statement of your research experience and interests.
