My research interests are in the role of terrestrial and oceanographic forcings on groundwater dynamics, with a particular focus on the extent of mixing between fresh and saline groundwater, nutrient cycling, and fluid and chemical fluxes to the coastal ocean. My overarching goal is to identify and understand links between physical groundwater flow and biogeochemical processes in nearshore aquifers across temporal (waves to climate) and spatial (beach to shelf) scales.
