Who we are

Jannes Kordilla

Dr. Jannes Kordilla

Group leader

jkordil@gwdg.de

Jannes is a lecturer and researcher (Akad. Rat. a.Z.) at the University of Goettingen (Faculty of Geoscience and Geography, Dept. Applied Geology, Prof. Sauter) and heading the Fractured Rock Hydrogeology group. His research focus is on laboratory and catchment-scale unsaturated flow dynamics in porous fractured media. He is involved in the development of high-performance smoothed particle hydrodynamics codes and large-scale modeling approaches.

Elena Shigorina

Dr. rer. nat. Elena Shigorina

Postdoc

+49 (551) 39-7913

eshigor@gwdg.de

Elena joined in 2015 as a Ph.D. student and focusses on the development of SPH codes to gain a deeper understanding of fracture-scale infiltration dynamics in fractured-porous media. She is currently developing a multiscale SPH model (DFG project) to study fracture-matrix interaction dynamics.

Lysander Bresinsky

M.Sc. Lysander Bresinsky

Ph.D. student

lbresin@gwdg.de

Lysander started his Ph.D. in late 2017 as part of the BMBF funded project MedWater (project lead Prof. Engelhardt, Prof. Sauter) within the GRoW initiative. He develops a high-performance double-continuum groundwater model of the mediterranean Western Aquifer Basin, with focus on the erratic infiltration dynamics in (semi-)arid regions.

Torsten Noffz

M.Sc. Torsten Noffz

Ph.D. student

+49 (551) 39-7913

tnoffz@gwdg.de

Torsten joined in 2018 to pursue his Ph.D. as part of the DFG project „iKarst“. He focusses on the surface-subsurface coupling, recharge dynamics and development of catchment-scale distributive modeling applications for fractured karst systems.

M.Sc. Florian Rüdiger

Ph.D. student

florianrued@gmail.com

Florian joined the group in the beginning of 2019. As part of a DFG project on preferential flow dynamics in porous-fractured media he is investigating the relationship between fracture network topology and preferential flow path formation via experimental work on laboratory and field scales and analytical modeling.

Temke Hector

B.Sc. Temke Hector

M.Sc. student

+49 (551) 39-7913

temke.hector@stud.uni-goettingen.de

Temke is working on the characterization and classification of karst springs in semi-arid Mediterranean environments using multi-continuum flow models. The outcomes of her thesis will help to relate hydraulic spring characteristics to geometric and infiltration-specific catchment parameters.

Thibault Würsch

B.Sc. cand. Kim Karoline Bartsch

B.Sc. student

+49 (551) 39-7913

k.bartsch@stud.uni-goettingen.de

As part of her B.Sc. thesis Kim investigates infiltration dynamics in fractured-porous media using laboratory and field experiments. Her goal is to determine relationship between fracture geometry/topology and the complex percolation patterns including erratic fracture flow coupled to diffuse porous matrix dynamics under partially saturated conditions.
