Fate and transport of emerging contaminants in natural and engineered systems; environmental detection of pharmaceuticals or treatment processes aimed at removing pharmaceuticals from drinking water/wastewater matrices
Experimental investigation, design, and modeling of physiochemical and biological processes that affect water quality; fundamental process mechanisms that control organic contaminant bioavailability in soils and sediments.
Evolution of life history traits, specifically focused on understanding how the genetic architecture underlying these traits guides and constrains their evolutionary responses to natural selection
