I am a Hydrogeologist/GIS specialist with a background in aqueous geochemistry and geochemical modeling. I work within the Aquifer Mapping Program on the 3D Aquifer Mapping team. Currently, we are working to build a hydrogeologic model of the Delaware Basin in south eastern New Mexico. This project is part of an ongoing effort to produce high quality 3D hydrogeologic subsurface maps of the entire state.
