Curriculum Vitae
Course Materials

Research: Within the broad field of environmental and water resources engineering, I focus on flow in porous media: aquifers, soils, and granular media filters. Research topics include:

  1. Clogging and deposit morphology (funded by DOE)
  2. Plume spreading by chaotic advection (funded by NSF)
  3. Zinc leaching from tire crumb rubber (funded by CDPHE)

Teaching: I teach fluid mechanics, pipe networks, and hydrology (applied, groundwater, and vadose). I am also a founding member of ASCE’s Excellence in Water Resources Education committee, whose peer-reviewed book of classroom demonstrations is available here.

Service: Among several assignments, I am proud to be the Faculty Advisor for our Student Chapter of ASCE, the American Society of Civil Engineers. Student membership is free, so join today.
