I am a hydrologist in the Caribbean-Florida Water Science Center. I am a Principal Investigator in projects that focus on carbonate aquifer characterization in Florida.
I apply a multi-disciplinary approach to sequence stratigraphic studies of the Floridan Aquifer. Current projects incorporate the use of seismic surveys, geophysical logs and core/cutting analysis to understand aquifer properties as they relate to groundwater flow. These studies on aquifer properties provide critical scientific information to aid in developing strategies to protect our drinking water supply.
