Research Associate

I conduct hydrogeological fieldwork on a wide range of contaminated and non-contaminated sites, including groundwater sampling, supervising drilling activities, designing and installing multi-level sampling systems, installing transducer strings, and site assessments. I am also the project manager for sites related to shale gas and studying the environmental effects of hydrocarbon activities on shallow groundwater.
