UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES


The Schools of Nursing and Pharmacy operate on both the Oxford and Jackson campuses. The Schools of Dentistry, Health Related Professionals and Medicine, and the Health Sciences Graduate School, are based in Jackson only. (Additional healthcare programs are available through the School of Applied Sciences on the Oxford campus.) Other than these exceptions, the schools above are on the Oxford campus.

Brief Bio

Dr. Andrew M. O'Reilly joined the Department of Geology and Geological Engineering at the University of Mississippi in August 2014 as an Assistant Professor. He earned Bachelor and Master of Civil Engineering degrees from Auburn University and a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering (Water Resources) from the University of Central Florida. Dr. O'Reilly has a wide range of experience in the geosciences, including the academic, public, and private sectors, most recently as a Hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Orlando, Florida. With over 20 years of professional experience, he has authored publications on a wide variety of topics, including hydrogeologic effects of land-based application of reclaimed water, characterization and simulation of regional aquifer systems, groundwater recharge and evapotranspiration processes, groundwater quality impacts of stormwater management practices, and data mining for understanding aquifer forcing-response dynamics. Dr. O'Reilly's research interests include data-driven and physics-based simulation, critical zone processes, contaminant transport and fate, biogeochemistry, cyanobacterial toxins, and green infrastructure. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in subsurface site characterization, geological engineering design, environmental geochemistry, contaminant transport, and vadose zone hydrology.
