_1170807My research group is comprised of experimentalists and computational modelers–both of whom have an awareness and interest in applying advanced science and engineering concepts to real-world environmental problems. We conduct research on topics related to Superfund (and other hazardous waste) sites, drinking water treatment, and environmental decision-making processes.

Specifically, we are actively involved with research related to the following topics:

  • the migration of contaminant vapors into indoor air spaces (vapor intrusion)
  • fate and transport of nanomaterials
  • water disinfection applications
  • computational modeling of environmental systems
  • uncertainty-informed decision making models

Finding common themes and incorporating knowledge created by other disciplines is an integral part of our research.

If you are a student interested in joining my research team, you should review the application procedures posted on the Graduate School website and the Civil Engineering Graduate Program website.
