M.Phil. 1985; Ph.D. 1989, Cambridge University
Dr. Culligan’s principal fields of interest include: geoenvironmental engineering, porous media flow and transport, urban sustainability and geotechnical centrifuge modeling. Her current research focuses on experimental and theoretical modeling of problems involving subsurface non-aqueous phase liquid (NAPL) transport and remediation, colloid transport in porous media, unsaturated flows and alternative strategies for urban water and wastewater management. Dr. Culligan is the author or co-author of over 100 technical articles, including two books, three book chapters, and over 60 refereed journal and conference proceedings.
