Water over rocks

Research in our lab is focused on reactions at water-mineral interface. Mineral solids are ubiquitous in the aquatic environment and water treatment systems. We are interested in understanding reactions catalyzed by earth-abundant mineral surfaces and harnessing their reactivity for pollution abatement and sustainable management of the aquatic environment.
