Al Cunningham has been professor emeritus of civil engineering at the Montana State University (MSU) since 2015. In addition to his post retirement appointment at the Department of Civil Engineering (CE), he is still affiliated with MSU's Center for Biofilm Engineering (CBE) and the Energy Research Institute (ERI).
We are very pleased that Al Cunningham will be visiting the Department of Hydromechanics and Modelling of Hydrosystems from September 18th to September 23rd, 2022, and that we can continue our long-standing research collaboration. Al has been involved in several Stuttgart PhD projects in the past. In SFB 1313, he has been a Mercator Fellow since the first funding period.
Al's research interests concern groundwater, hydrology, bioremediation, subsurface biofilms, subsurface storage and leakage control of gas (CO2, CH4 and H2) and associated reservoir fluids, synergies between energy production and water quality.
