Assistant Geoscientist
Applied Geophysics

We believe in the power of every person.



I'm interested in using Resistivity and Electromagnetic methods (ERT, SP, TDEM, FDEM, VLF, GPR, MT) for geophysical exploration (e.g., groundwater aquifers, mineral resources, subsurface structures, archaeological remains, and environmental and engineering problems). Also, I have a special interest in Agricultural Geophysics (e.g., groundwater-surface water interactions, nitrate contamination in aquifers, soil salinization, soil piping, rodent burrows, claypans, sinkholes and differential settlement, landslides and other mass movements, drainage pipe problems, and water seepage from dams and irrigation canals).
