|Ameli||Ali||Numerical Analysis, Climate Changes and Impacts, Hydrological Cycle and Reservoirs, Ground Water and Water Tables, Groundwater Ecohydrology, Hydro-geological Engineering, Watershed Management, Applied Hydro-geochemistry, Environmental Tracer, Groundwater-Surfacewater & land Interaction, Green Infrastructure||Any time / year round||
My research explores below questions:
1) Where does water go after it rains?
2) How does chemistry of rainwater alter on its way from being rainfall to being streamflow?
3) How do resource developments impact water pathways and stream water quality?
4) Where are suitable locations for agricultural and forestry activities with a minimal impact on water quality?
|Abrutyn||Seth||Suicide, Sociological Theory, mental health, social psychology, Emotions, youth||Any time / year round||
I am currently looking for research assistants in a large-scale, two-five year comparative ethnographic project in Colorado focused on two communities (9 high schools) that have an adolescent suicide problem. Though we are focused on suicide as an outcome, we are primarily interested in help-seeking behaviors (e.g., who do kids seek help from, when, why).
