I am looking for 1-2 motivated M.S. or Ph.D. students to join our group at UNLV starting in Fall 2024! Possible research topics include:

  • Investigating controls on managed aquifer recharge using geophysical data, machine learning and hydrologic models
  • Monitoring floodplain biogeochemistry using novel in situ sensors
  • Modeling water quality in arid watersheds

Students with a background in earth science, chemistry, engineering or other related fields are encouraged to apply. Previous coding or research experience is a strong plus, but not a strict requirement. Please feel free to email me directly with your CV and some information on your research interests. Be sure to reach out well before the application deadline (February 1, 2024) so that we can see if it would be a good fit.

Successful applicants will join the Department of Geoscience at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas — one of the top Geoscience programs in the West. In addition, Las Vegas is an affordable city with a ton to do, ranging from mountain biking and rock climbing to music festivals and a great food scene. In fact, Vegas has better access to more national parks than any other city in the U.S.! More information about the UNLV graduate program in Geoscience can be found here.
