Faculty & Staff
Dr. Reed Maxwell is the Rowlinson Professor of Hydrology in the Geology and Geological Engineering Department and the Director of the Integrated GroundWater Modeling Center (IGWMC) at the Colorado School of Mines. His research interests are focused on hydrology, particularly scientific questions relating to understanding connections within the hydrologic cycle and how they relate to water quantity and quality under anthropogenic stresses. He has authored more than 110 peer-reviewed journal articles and teaches classes on integrated hydrology, fluid mechanics and modeling terrestrial water flow. He currently leads a research group of graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and staff housed in the IGWMC at CSM. He has graduated 12 PhD students and 18 MS thesis students since coming to Mines in 2009. Before joining the faculty at the School of Mines, Dr. Maxwell was a postdoc and then staff in the Hydrologic Sciences group at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and he holds a Ph.D. degree in Environmental Water Resources from the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of California, Berkeley.
Research Associate, Department of Geology and Geological Engineering, Colorado School of Mines
Lisa Gallagher has been with the center since 2015, primarily focusing on the education and outreach mission of the center. Since 2015, outreach initiatives developed and implemented by the IGWMC have impacted more than 7,500 K-12 students in the Colorado Front Range region. Lisa has since taken over as assistant director of the center, managing operations in support of the IGWMC’s mission. Lisa’s research interests focus on the advancement of STEM in the K-12 education system by fostering partnerships between scientists and K-12 educators to improve content and application of STEM in the classroom. Before joining the IGWMC staff, Lisa was a teaching fellow and research associate with the Trefny Institute for Educational Innovation at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM). She holds a PhD degree in Environmental Science and Engineering from the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at CSM.
