At Susquehanna Shale Hills CZO, I researched spatiotemporal controls on near-surface hillslope infiltration, such as surface topography and subsurface heterogeneity. The primary method of investigation comprised time-lapse geophysical surveys of artificial infiltration experiments, with the goal of imaging fluid propagation into the subsurface. Geophysical methods included time-lapse ground-penetrating radar (GPR) and electrical resistivity tomography (ERT). My current research interests center on fluid dynamics around and within alluvial bed forms, particularly the coupling of hyporheic exchange flows and bed form topography. I plan to study these phenomena in laboratory flume experiments using particle imaging velocimetry (PIV) and various image processing techniques. Overall, I hope to obtain a graduate degree and pursue a research career.
