My research mostly focuses on hydrodynamics in porous mediums and developing integrated surface/subsurface flow codes and numerical models. More specifically, I am interested in shallow groundwater systems, hillslope hydrology, land surface recharge estimation, distributed hydrological models, and impacts of land-use change on groundwater systems.
Also, I am interested in understanding how water and soil in saturated and unsaturated zones behave to a drainage system. I am the developer of DrainFlow software, a fully-distributed-coupled surface/subsurface flow model, specifically designed for studying the impact of drains and submerged tunnels in saturated and unsaturated zones.
At the moment, I am working on an adapted form of Saint-Venant equations for groundwater flow. The goal is to escape using any Darcy-based equations and develop a general water flow equation. The outcome of the research will result in a unification of surface water and groundwater equations.
