My research focuses on sustainable groundwater management for people and the environment, particularly in semiarid and arid regions, and is grouped into three unified research themes:
  1. Water, Energy, and Minerals: Effective groundwater management for energy and mining;
  2. Sustainable Aquifer Management: Groundwater flow, transport, and recharge processes; and
  3. Ecohydrology: Springs, groundwater-dependent ecosystems, and surface-groundwater interactions.
The hydrogeologic techniques I employ integrate and synthesize structural, stratigraphic, hydrochemical, hydrogeophysical, potentiometric, and environmental tracer data to create conceptual models that facilitate the understanding of groundwater and surface water processes.
