Kamini Singha

Professor, Geology and Geological Engineering


  • Ph.D. in Hydrogeology, Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences, Stanford University, 2005
  • B.Sc. with Honors in Geophysics, Department of Geology and Geophysics, University of Connecticut, 1999


Research Interests

  • Fluid flow and contaminant transport in porous media and fractured rock as well as groundwater-surface-water interactions.
  • Integration of hydrologic and geophysical techniques.
  • Mathematical simulation to improve predictive modeling.
  • Quantification of the “geophysical footprint” to constrain the operation of parameters controlling fluid flow and solute.
