H ello and thank you for visiting this site. I am a Professor in the Department of Geology at the University of Kansas.

My area of research is in groundwater contamination and remediation, and the development of related characterization tools. I received a Pearson Medal for excellence in research in the Earth Sciences Department at the University of Waterloo, and I was a recipient of an NSF Career Grant to study the use of granular iron (zero valent iron) in groundwater remediation. I invented and patented the cross-injection system for introducing nutrients to aquifers for bioremediation, and the Point Velocity Probe (PVP) for the direct measurement of groundwater velocity. I was awarded the a Kemper Fellowship for excellence in teaching.

This website provides an overview of projects, facilities, and publications related to research with which I have been involved. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Students interested in working with me at the University of Kansas can reach me with the contact information below. Additional information about apply to the hydrogeology program at KU is available at the following webpage.
