Research Interests

My current research is modeling the upconing of salt-water into fresh water portions of Brackish aquifers. I am modeling the critical pumping rate and upconing of salt-water and fresh-water interface in the Dockum aquifer of Texas. I will be developing a critical pumping rate distribution map to provide an overall idea of reasonable pumping rate to guide groundwater development in this formation.
