Michael Tso is a M.S. student in the Hydrology and Water Resources Department at the University of Arizona, where he is also a research assistant at Dr. TCJ Yeh's Hydrualic Tomography Group. He is currently working on research that involves application of hydraulic tomography to improve subsurface contaminant remediation reliability. Michael passed his FE exam in Arizona and is preparing for his professional engineer (PE) licensure.

Michael graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with BS geosystems engineering and hydrogeology. He believes better understanding on fluid transport in geological systems is essential to sustain the healthy development of our society. He is determined to become a professional engineer and hydrogeoloist who helps tackle some most challenging geosystems problems in the world. He also has the vision help securing the supply of drinking water to some of the  underprivileged communities in the world. See "One Dream for Water".

Michael welcomes research/consulting collaboration through Dr. Yeh's group, as well as volunteering opportunities in water/energy/environmental-related causes. 

Michael will start his doctoral studies in Environmental Science (Hydrogeophysics) at Lancaster Environment Centre in October 2015.
