The focus of my research is the study of the fate and transport of contaminants in the environment. My work integrates hydrology, geochemistry, and environmental microbiology to predict the transport of solute and particles under complex aquatic environments.
My research approach emphasizes highly controlled laboratory experiments that investigate and quantify fundamental processes controlling the interaction of contaminants with the solid medium and with biofilms. Results from the laboratory experiments are combined with field measurements and experiments, and this information is coupled with existing models to quantify transport processes under natural conditions or during remediation scenarios. This research improves and extends our fundamental understanding of hydroecology, stream biogeochemistry and stream-subsurface interactions.
