am a master's student in hydrology at New Mexico Tech and a graduate research assistant at Los Alamos National Laboratory.  My research interests involve the subsurface hydrology of Arctic tundra.   Currently, I am involved in a tracer study to determine microtopographic and active layer depth controls on the subsurface flow regimes of ice wedge polygons.  This experiment is a contribution to the DOE's Next Generation Ecosystem Experiment.  The study sites are in Alaska's Barrow Peninsula.  

Look at one of the study sites.
