Biosketch

Deanna Durnford is a Professor in the Civil Engineering Department at Colorado State University, where she has been on the faculty since 1985. Her primary research interests include the flow of immiscible organics in porous media, flow and transport processes in the vadose zone and the hydraulic connection between groundwater and surface water. Her recent work includes study of the hyporheic zone below streambeds and the influence of hydrologic processes on these ecosystems.

Dr. Durnford’s research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the USDA, DOE and the U.S. Air Force, among others. She has served on the National Academy of Sciences Committee for the Technical Assessment of Environmental Programs at Los Alamos National Laboratories. She is a Professional Engineer in the State of Colorado and teaches graduate level courses in groundwater hydrology and hydraulics, vadose zone hydrology and groundwater contaminant transport processes. She has served as graduate committee chair for 15 PhD students and over 20 M.S. students. Dr. Durnford is also the Site Coordinator for the Louis Stokes Colorado Alliance for Minority Participation.
