A critical aspect of Public Health is understanding how environmental processes affect not only human exposure to toxic contaminants but also the effect these contaminants have on the maintenance of an ecological balance upon which all life and well-being depend.
Our research group studies the role of aquatic ecosystems as a conduit for environmental contaminants. Specifically, we are examining biogeochemical processes affecting the transport and fate of contaminants in aquatic ecosystems. Our work ranges from laboratory experiments highlighting how changes in the chemical form of contaminants affect their long range transport, bioavailability, and subsequent bioaccumulation in aquatic food chains, to global modeling studies of chemical transport and risks to human health.
