Research interests/expertise

Identifying the structure of Natural Organic Matter (NOM) by using solid-state C-13 nuclear magnetic resonance and Infrared spectroscopic techniques

Studying the sorption/desorption behavior of hydrophobic organic compounds to natural organic matter
Understanding the hysteresis and the sorption mechanisms by observing the conformation changes of NOM, and characterization of mechanism is critical for fate and risk assessment as sorption can be rate-limiting to biodegradation, bioavailability, and subsurface transport of contaminants
Using radioactive material to identify the vertical distribution of soil erosion
Carbon sequestration associated with global change and policy.
