Research Interests

Responsible for conducting and supervising graduate students in research on the colloid and aquatic chemistry of soils and its application to environmental quality, chemistry and remediation of chromium-contaminated soils, disposal of waste materials on land, and microbial-chemical redox processes. Areas of specialization include oxidation-reduction processes, heavy metal and aluminum chemistry, trace element speciation and analysis. I also conduct transdisciplinary research on the role of historic soil and water management on the rise, fall, and resilience of ancient civilizations; drawing on the disciplines of ecology, environmental history, and soil science.
