Welcome!  We are geochemists that focus our research efforts on the biogeochemistry of metals in pristine and contaminated systems.  Our work borrows analytical approaches from the disciplines of inorganic chemistry and material science to measure the partitioning of metals among gas, aqueous, solid, and biological phases in the environment.  We usually work in multi-disciplinary teams to investigate the transport, bioavailability, and fate of metals in natural systems, such as the ocean, lakes, sediments, aquifers, and soil.
