Research Laboratory Director I am currently the director of the Environmental Modeling Research Laboratory (EMRL).  The EMRL was formed in 1998 and at one point was the largest research laboratory at BYU with 35 faculty-staff-students and $1.2-1.5M per year in externally funded research. Our primary research sponsors were the US Army Corps of Engineers, but we also received funding (both directly and indirectly) from the EPA, DOE, FHWA, and the NRC. In 2007 we moved the software development activities off-campus to a consulting and software development company called Aquaveo, LLC. We continue to do modeling-related research on-campus.
   
Software

Through my research, I have directed the development of a computer program called the "Department of Defense Groundwater Modeling System" (GMS).  GMS is a state-of-the-art three-dimensional environment for ground water model construction and visualization.  It includes tools for site characterization including geostatistics and solid modeling of soil stratigraphy.  It also includes interfaces to a large number of ground water models including MODFLOW, MODPATH, MT3DMS, SEAM3D, RT3D, FEMWATER, SEEP2D, and ADH. GMS has been designed using a conceptual model approach where model input is created in a grid independent fashion using GIS vector objects.  The model discretization is then performed automatically.  It also contains state-of-the-art tools for visualization of 3D model results.  GMS is the most comprehensive and sophisticated groundwater modeling software available and is used by over 8000 organizations in over 100 countries.

   
Seminars/Short Courses I have taught approximately 75 seminars and short courses at various locations in the United States and internationally (China, Korea, Australia, Germany).  The course topics have included beginning and advanced ground water modeling, and computer simulation of natural attenuation and bio-remediation.  The courses are sponsored by National Ground Water Association and Aquaveo.
