About

Title of PhD: Combining geophysical and environmental tracer approaches for identifying shallow subsurface aquifer-river exchange

Supervisors: Dr Stefan Krause and Dr Michael Rivett

I am undertaking doctoral research into the Hyporheic zone (The saturation zone between groundwater and surface water). I am using a geophysical technique (Electrical resistivity tomography ERT) and environmental tracer approach (eg. Fiber-Optic distributed temperature sensing) for identifying spatial patterns in streambed physical properties as the main controls of the aquifer river exchanges flow of meandering rivers.

Qualifications

B.Sc. and M.Sc.

Biography

I worked as a teaching assistant in the Geology Department from January/08/2006 to Oct/17/2008 at Salahaddin university-Erbil-Iraq- College of Science, Department of geology. Then In October 2008, I was accepted into the MSc Program at Salahaddin University in the specialty of Hydrogeology. In February 2011, I gained an MSc degree in geology and became assistant lecturer for the Hydrogeology course in the department of geology at Salahaddin university.

Currently, I am doing a PhD at the University of Birmingham in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences.
