Daniella specializes in hydrologic field observations, fluid flow and near surface geophysics. In layman's terms, she is obsessed with water; how it travels through rock; what it picks up along the way; and how water transforms the environment. She focuses on how landscapes store water in the shallow subsurface, a particularly relevant topic seeing how much of Earth's hilly regions are mantled with weathered rock. She looks at the ecological significance of rock moisture; controls on the bottom boundary of the Critical Zone; and geophysical imaging of landscape scale patterns of weathering
