Academic & Research Interest

Dr. Reeves’ primary research interests include numerical simulation of fluid flow, heat and solute transport through geologic media and the use of non-local, fractional-order equations to describe anomalous flow and transport behavior within hillslopes and subsurface aquifers. Dr. Reeves is also interested in the use of integrated surface water-ground water models to forecast climate change impacts on basin-scale water resources, geothermal reservoir simulation, linking heterogeneity to non-local equation parameters, conceptual and parametric uncertainty, the role of geologic structures on ground water flow and transport, statistical analysis and stochastic reproduction of rock fracture data, and rock fracture mechanics.
