Biography

My focus and interest at the USGS has been in lake-aquifer interactions and groundwater hydrology primarily in the glaciated New England and the arid Southwest US. Lake-aquifer interaction studies have involved water and nutrient budgets. Groundwater studies have involved numerical modeling in complex geologic settings to protect the source of water to public-supply wells, to understand the effects of withdrawals on the groundwater system and surface-water features, and to assess the hydrologic response to climate change.
