Jay Choi

Dr. Jay Choi studies hydrologic numerical modeling and field investigation for contaminant transport processes, especially in coupled groundwater and surface-water systems. His research has been focused on quantifying the interactions between groundwater and surface water from stream hyphoreic zone to wetlands using field-tracer studies and the application of numerical models with statistical optimization and statistical sensitivity analysis of transport models, the development and modification of surface-water flow model for wetland system, and the management and development of a hydrologic and biogeochemical database. Dr. Choi received his undergraduate degree in Geology from Yonsei Unversity, Korea. he received his mater's degree in Geology from Shimane University, Japan in 1989. An traineeship in Environmental Science, NIEHS Superfund Hazardous Waste Research Program, he completed his Ph.D in Hydrology from University of Arizona in1998. He worked as a post-doctoral researcher at U.S. Geological Survey during1998-2001. He worked at S.S. Papadopulos & Associates, Inc. as a Project Hydrogeologist between 2001-2010.
