Areas of Expertise
- Surface Water-Groundwater Interactions
- Coastal Hydrology
- Ph.D. University of Texas-Austin 2011
Audrey Sawyer and her research group are focused on two research themes:
- Understanding interactions between surface water and groundwater in streams, rivers, estuaries, and coasts
- Determining hydrologic controls on the movement of nutrients, contaminants, and heat in watersheds
Sawyer's group pursues these themes by combining laboratory and field observations with mathematical modelling. Sawyer maintains a computational hydrodynamics laboratory with hydrogeologic field instrumentation, experimental tanks, and high-performance computing.
