I investigate the influence of nanoscale materials and processes on the chemistry of environmental systems. My students and I undertake studies to:
- understand how size-dependent properties of nanoscale minerals influence natural and human-impacted environmental biogeochemical processes,
- support sustainable water resources and practices by understanding the roles of nanoscale biogeochemical processes in mediating toxic element/compound release or sequestration, and
- create new nanoscale solutions to emerging challenges at the intersection of Earth’s dynamic processes, natural resources, and human society.
Current graduate students is Molly Sexton (M.S.), working on nanodiamonds.
