—We combine experimental and theoretical approaches to address research questions at the interfaces of environmental chemistry, environmental health, and environmental biotechnology.
—Research activities seek to obtain novel molecular insights into the chemistry and biochemistry of organic contaminants, organic substrates, and biomacromolecules in natural and engineered systems.
—We are concerned with elucidating the mechanisms that control the chemical trapping, biological assimilation, and dynamic fate of organic molecules with important relevance to ecosystem health, agricultural productivity, and organic carbon cycling and recycling.
