Stochastic theories of water and solute transport, flow pathways and residence times from headwaters catchments to the continent
Lauren uses integrated modeling as a tool to (1) improve our process-level understanding of water cycling in complex, mountainous terrain, (2) use this understanding to examine underlying causes of discrepancies in climate projections for the Rocky Mountains, and (3) contextualize this work in the broader social-political framework driving decision-making in the Southwest United States.

Rachel analyzes water table response to pumping over the High Plains Aquifer using observational data and CONUS PF-CLM; resolving hydraulic conductivity over the High Plains Aquifer. She is interested in how geologic heterogeneity influences groundwater systems such as karst, faulting, and impermeable boundaries, water chemistry, and how land disturbances such as wildfire and mass wasting impacts water quality on the stream scale.
