Michelle Rygus

Michelle Rygus (female) obtained her Master's Degree in Hydrogeology from the University of Birmingham (UK) in 2017 and is currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Pavia (Italy). Michelle’s research activity involves developing a methodology which exploits the application of A-DInSAR techniques to estimate hydrogeological parameters and numerically model groundwater level variation and ground motion changes in over-exploited large-scale aquifer systems.

Previously, Michelle worked as a consultant hydrogeologist focusing on soil and groundwater remediation projects in the UK and Ireland. She has experience with designing, coordinating and carrying out complex hydrogeological site investigations using a wide variety of methodologies; including soil vapour surveys, hydraulic testing, groundwater monitoring, and In-Situ Chemical Oxidation to remedy groundwater contamination by organic solvents.
