Research

We combine experimental and theoretical approaches to address research questions at the interfaces of environmental chemistry, environmental health, and environmental biotechnology.
We are concerned with understanding and predicting environmental processes relevant to ecosystem health, agricultural productivity, and organic carbon cycling and recycling.
We seek novel molecular insights into the mechanisms that control chemical trapping, biological assimilation, and dynamic fate of organic contaminants, organic substrates, and biomacromolecules.
