Research Interests | Investigation of how structure influences flow in heterogenous porous media. Using MODFLOW, I simulated flow through randomly generated, binary conductivity fields. Then, I examined the relationship between structure and effective hydraulic conductivity (Keff). I concluded that the number of percolating paths is the most important structural feature for predicting Keff. This could inform the selection of appropriate geophysical or tracer methods to help predict Keff at the field scale.
