After graduating from Haskell and working for the USGS for a year, he has decided to come to Mines to explore surface water-groundwater interactions, and their natural potential to improve water quality through a variety of mechanisms. During his free time, Ian enjoys creating music, drawing, painting, backpacking, and watching, in his words, too many YouTube videos. He tells me that he should probably read more…but I’m guessing he doesn’t feel that way after all the papers he’s reading these days. Or maybe he meant for fun… E-mail Ian.

Emmalynn Hicks

B.S., Geology, Bryn Mawr College, 2019
M.S. student, Hydrologic Science and Engineering, Colorado School of Mines, 2021-present

Post college, Emma worked in the Coastal Hydrodynamics and Sediment Dynamics Lab at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science before pursuing a degree in hydrology.

Ryan Harmon

B.S., Earth Science, B.A., Environmental Studies, University of California Santa Cruz, 2014
Ph.D. student, Hydrologic Science and Engineering, Colorado School of Mines, 2015-present

After graduating with his B.S., Ryan worked as a lab manager and staff researcher in Andrew Fisher’s Hydrogeology group at UCSC. Since coming to Mines, he has been focusing his interests towards understanding the links between evapotranspiration and groundwater, and how ecological processes modify hydrologic flow paths in the critical zone. Ryan, in collaboration with Holly Barnard, is using geophysical techniques and stable isotopes to assess these dynamics on a hillslope scale in the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest. When away from his studies, you will find Ryan trying to climb, run, hike, or ski up some cliff side or mountain. E-mail Ryan.

Emily Nelson

B.S., Geology, North Dakota State University, 2021
M.S. student, Hydrologic Science and Engineering, Colorado School of Mines, 2021-present

After finishing her B.S., Emily interned with Ellingson Companies, creating a GIS database for their agriculture drain tile division and working on a city water installation and development project with one of their directed drilling crews. For her M.S., she will be investigating the effects that evapotranspiration has on subsurface moisture movement in collaboration with Holly Barnard. In her free time, she enjoys fishing (and obviously is good at it), hiking, photography, music, reading, and taking care of her many plants. E-mail Emily.

Kenneth Swift Bird

M.S., Hydrologic Science and Engineering, Colorado School of Mines, 2018
Ph.D. student, Hydrologic Science and Engineering, Colorado School of Mines, 2021-present (co-advised by Alexis Sitchler)

After graduating with his M.S. from Mines and then spending some time in industry, Kenny has decided to return to Mines to study how metal(loid) fate and transport in river corridors is impacted by hydrologic events for his Ph.D. His work is investigating how and when the hyporheic zone mediates fate and transport by investigating the dynamic interplay between surface water-groundwater interactions, subsurface geochemistry, and meta(loid) cycling in the critical zone. In his free time, he enjoys reading, nearly any activity in the mountains, and playing disc golf. E-mail Kenny.

Lawrence Thompson

B.S., Geology, Sonoma State University, 2020
M.S. student, Hydrologic Science and Engineering, Colorado School of Mines, 2020-present

Ph.D. student, Hydrologic Science and Engineering, Colorado School of Mines, 2020-present (co-advised by Alexis Sitchler)

Sara is working on concentration-discharge relations within a critical zone context at the Manitou Experimental Forest. Her Ph.D. builds on interests in groundwater geochemistry as an undergraduate and investigating the role that groundwater plays in controlling spatiotemporal stream drying patterns as part of her M.S. She once told me she already has her “PhT”, which is her degree in taping bottles, which she is exceptionally good at. When not driving piezometers into rocky streambeds, she enjoys swimming, skiing, biking, and climbing. E-mail Sara.

Research Technician

Luke Jacobsen

B.S. student, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Colorado School of Mines, 2019-present

Luke transferred to Mines from Arapahoe Community College in 2019, at which point he started working with us. We immediately realized how incredibly gifted he was at making decisions and fixing broken things in the field, so we hired him as a technician. Luke LOVES the outdoors (his emphasis). He has a fascination for nature, especially birds, trees, fish, wildflowers and rocks; he loves how all of these things are interconnected in an ecosystem. He enjoys backcountry skiing, mountaineering, backpacking, sailing, biking…really any activity where he can get out and enjoy nature. He also really enjoys good company and conversation. E-mail Luke.
