Stephen Moysey, Director

Professor, Geological Sciences
My interests are primarily in the area of hydrogeophysics where I focus on environmental sensing and model-data synthesis to understand mechanisms of flow and transport in porous media.  I am particularly interested in using data and models to scale from the pore to watershed and understanding linkages between the unsaturated zone, groundwater, and surface water.

Mike O’Driscoll, Associate Director

Professor, Coastal Studies
Utilizing tracers and other hydrogeological, geochemical, and geophysical techniques to develop insights into the geological controls and land-use effects on surface water-groundwater interactions and contaminant transport. Recent work has focused on evaluating onsite wastewater contaminant inputs to nutrient-sensitive Coastal Plain and Piedmont watersheds.
