Research Interests

Our work involves mathematical modelling, analytical chemistry, lab studies, field studies, and information management. Our research is motivated by the need to develop defensible strategies to improve environmental quality in systems subject to anthropogenically elevated contaminant inputs. Our work focuses on aquatic systems (air, water and sediment) and multimedia movement (air, water, soil, sediment, vegetation and impervious surfaces), specifically, in urban areas.
