Research Summary

Research interests center around the fate, transport, and impacts of emerging contaminants. These compounds can cause adverse impacts to fish and other sensitive aquatic species at trace concentrations as low as 1 ng/L. We seek to understand how the coupling of hydrology, biogeochemistry, and human activities affects the export of these compounds from agricultural fields to surface water bodies.
