Biography

Shawn Naylor is a Research Hydrogeologist and Director of the Center for Geospatial Data Analysis (CGDA), a research group that bridges the IGS, IU Department of Geological Sciences, and IU Department of Geography. Prior to joining the CGDA, Naylor gained professional experience in both the private and public sectors while working on projects ranging from contaminated aquifer characterization/remediation to mapping irrigated agricultural lands using geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing. He earned an MS degree in geology from the University of Montana where he studied alpine glacial geology and landscape evolution. His current research interests include quantifying water and heat fluxes through the unsaturated zones of glaciated terrains, characterizing glacial aquifers in three dimensions, and developing spatial databases to facilitate geothermal energy exploitation in Indiana.
