Groundwater is an important medium for geochemical exploration of many different styles of mineralization, including porphyry copper, volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS).

Current academic research interests are in earth sciences and engineering. Specific examples include developing a new means of ordnance disposal using microbially mediated reaction pathways, developing a new anemometer based on UAS technology, and improving the speed of computation and predictive capability of aerosol transport models.
