Baptiste Dafflon received his MSc (2004) in geophysics from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Zurich (ETHZ) and his PhD (2009) in geophysics from the University of Lausanne (Switzerland). He has worked as a Post-doctoral researcher at the Center of Geophysical Investigation of the Shallow Subsurface (CGISS) at Boise State University, due to a one and a half year fellowship grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation. Currently Baptiste is a Post-doctoral researcher at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL).
Baptiste’s main current research interests are the inherently trans-disciplinary fields of environmental geophysics, hydrology and biochemistry. Currently his research focuses mainly on the development of comprehensive strategies for the integration of multiple sources of geophysical and hydrological information. The combination of high-resolution geophysical methods (ground-penetrating radar, electrical measurements, seismic data,…) with hydrogeological methods (core and logging data, pumping and tracer tests,...) offers the perspective to obtain greatly improved prediction of hydrological and biochemical processes, which is a key prerequisite for better understanding and predictions of groundwater flow and contaminant transport processes in heterogeneous aquifers. Making such strategies accessible will offer new capabilities for efficient, sustainable and cost-effective management strategies, as well as for the protection and remediation of groundwater resources.
