Address: 12708 Bruce B Downs Blvd Apt 214 Tampa. FL 33612
Affiliation: KRG-USF (Karst Research Group at the University of South Florida)
Position: PhD student at USF studying speleogenesis
Specialization: Geomorphology
Instrumentation: MATLAB 7 Software

 
Geoactivity: Florida
(and other autogenic karst landscapes)
Interests: 1. Refine and verify mixing-corrosion regimes by use of computer modeling using MATLAB-7 software.
2. Define, refine, and verify other paradigms of speleogenesis by use of computer modeling to include: a) microgravitic breakdown, b) abrasive scouring, c) internal phreatic pressure gradients and fluid dynamics, d) temperature-induced solutional corrosion,e)biological-sourcecorrosion
3.The ultimate goal of my research is to create a synergistic model that can accrtely recreate the evolution of the Sulphur Springs aquifer located in Florida.
4. I hope to join others to advance karst science by facilitating the use of advance nano-tracers, robotic probes, Dalton's Gas Law measurement devices, deep penetration seismic imaging techniques, and laser measurement systems- the technology is there and there is no longer a reason to treat the aquifer as a black box or to look only at borehole analysis- we can learn everything if we apply current knowledge and technologies.
