Sam Jacobson

MSc Candidate, School of Environmental Sciences

I was born and raised in Pennsylvania, and graduated with a BS in geology from Bucknell Univeristy in Lewisburg, PA. In my undergrad I focused on developing a tracer that could be used to understand contaminant transport in well developed karst systems using 3-D printers and X-ray computed tomography. At G360 I hope to expand my contaminant knowledge to include contaminant transport in fractured media, and field methods. Rocks Rock!

Formerly a Research Assistant with G360, my research focuses on evaluating the effects of agricultural contamination near a municipal pumping well using depth-discrete sampling in a shallow bedrock aquifer system.

Theresa Pilato

MSc Candidate, School of Engineering

Teresa is a recent graduate from the Colorado School of Mines with B.S. in Geophysical Engineering and has previously worked for the USGS with the Geomagnetism Program as an intern. She is pursuing a MASc in Water Resources Engineering with a focus in groundwater modelling.

Brian Ndirangu

MSc Candidate, School of Engineering

Brian is a Joint Master’s Degree student in Water Science and Engineering (focussing on Groundwater and Global Change) at IHE-Delft, Technische Universität Dresden, and Instituto Superior Tecnico. As a visiting researcher to G³⁶⁰, he is investigating the temporal evolution of rock matrix DNAPL and comparing DNAPL removed using a hydraulic barrier system with contaminant mass declines in the source zone.
