Dr. Stormont teaches courses in unsaturated zone hydrology, soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering, waste containment technologies, and civil engineering design.
He is actively working in the areas of saturated and unsaturated flow through soil and rock. His experience includes field and laboratory measurements of hydraulic properties and behavior, as well as numerical simulations of near-surface processes including evapotranspiration, infiltration, drainage, and erosion.
Dr. Stormont is also investigating the use of nano-materials to improve wellbore sealing for CO2 sequestration, hydraulic fracturing and other applications. He is a registered Civil Engineer in the State of New Mexico.
