Dr Dylan Irvine

Lecturer in Groundwater Hydrology

My research involves measurements of water temperature (in boreholes or stream/wetland bed materials) to determine water flow. This includes flow in aquifers and the interaction between groundwater and surface water.

I am particularly interested in writing software using the Python programming language to automate analyses as well as the use of groundwater modelling software.
