Research Interests

  • Mathematical and experimental models for assessing transport, transformation and persistence of contaminants in the environment.
  • Organics trapped and sorbed in soils as a source zone of groundwater contamination.
  • Physical and biological factors that control bioremediation of contaminated plumes in groundwater.
  • Water balance modeling to quantify ground water - surface water interactions.
  • Emerging contaminants, specifically evaluating the persistence of heavy-metals in mining environments and predicting antibiotics transport in soils.
