Designed, assembled, and wrote all the data acquisition and
analysis software for a custom X-ray
attenuation device (tomograph) used primarily to measure the
rate of DNAPL dissolution within experimental flow cells.
Contributed (mostly through experimental design and authoring
software for data acquisition and analysis) to numerous
multi-phase flow and mass transport experiments.
