Research interests

(i) Main field: environmental hydrogeology, derivation of the analytical models of the subsurface solute transport, development of site characterization techniques, site-scale modeling of groundwater flow and solute transport processes;
(ii) Current research interests: model development for flow and solute transport in stochastically generated fractured media, TTD assessment, impact assessment coursed by nonpoint spatially variable sources of contamination, predicting hazardous waste disposal in geological formations, and radionuclide transport with runoff.
