Biological and Agricultural Engineering
My primary research efforts are driven by practical environmental problems facing land and resource managers and discovery of the underlying processes affecting derivation of development of applicable methods or solutions to these problems. My focus remains largely directed at gaining a better understanding of hillslope hydrology, wetland and irrigation/drainage processes in the field.
