Personal profile

Profile

My research field is fate and transport of contaminants in soil and groundwater and remediation technologies for contaminated soil and groundwater. Recently this has primarily involved natural attenuation of contaminants in fractured clay till aquitards and sand and limestone aquifers, enhanced in situ biological and chemical degradation of chlorinated solvents and innovative investigation methods for solvent DNAPL.
