Personal profile


My research field is the modeling and analysis of flow and transport processes in porous and fractured geologies and of coupled processes in free flow and porous media. My work closely combines experimental work (like pumping tests and tracer tests) and modeling to enhance the conceptual understanding and predictability of the spreading of substances in the subsurface and across the soil-atmosphere interface. Models of different complexity are used for the planning and interpretation of field work, and the field data is used to test and develop modeling tools that can be employed for the considered systems. Part of my work is the development of a wiki about contaminant transport in fractured limestone aquifers (https://limestone.env.dtu.dk).
