Charlotte Garing
Assistant Professor

I am a geoscientist with a background in physics, chemistry, and engineering. 

I got my education in France, where I am from. After a PhD combining field geophysical monitoring, laboratory flow experiments and X-ray micro-CT imaging to study geochemical reactions and flow in a coastal carbonate aquifer (funded by TOTAL S.A.), I started using my experimental and image analysis skills to investigate similar hydrogeochemical processes in the context of CO2 storage in saline aquifers as a Postdoc at CNRS in France (EC FP7 project). I then joined Sally Benson's group at Stanford University to work as a Postdoc for the DOE-EFRC Center for Nanoscale Control of Geologic CO2 and the Global Climate Energy Program (GCEP). 

Since 2019, I am an Assistant Professor of Hydrogeology in the Department of Geology at the University of Georgia.

I teach the following undergraduate and graduate courses:

  • Environmental Geoscience (GEOL1120) 

  • Earth Processes and Environments (GEOL1121E) 

  • Surficial and Near-Surficial Processes (GEOL3020/3020L) 

  • Hydrogeology (GEOL4220/6220) 

  • Advanced Hydrogeology (GEOL8700)
