My interests
I am interested in modeling, measurement and interpretation of mass and energy flow and transformation in porous media; in situ characterization of soil hydraulic and mechanical properties. Developing new measurement methods. Current research interests: (1) evaporation from porous media (2) hydromechanical triggering of landslides (3) acoustic emissions for interfacial motions (4) diffusion and microbial activity in unsaturated soils
