I am a hydrogeologist and petrophysicist with broad expertise in mechanical engineering and environmental science, and 16 years experience in organizing and conducting field investigations in remote environments, including Kobuk Valley, Alaska. I develop and apply geophysical and remote-sensing characterization methodologies to investigate and understand hydrogeologic processes, including freeze-thaw processes and related vadose and groundwater flows. I am a licensed Professional Geoscientist (Geology) in the State of Texas, and an Engineer-in-Training in the State of Washington.
