As global demands on fresh water resources escalate, improving our understanding of the linkages between human activities and biogeochemical cycles is becoming increasingly important. My research delves into the biogeochemical processes that lead to the contamination of natural waters and, ultimately, strives to find sustainable solutions for water and sanitation problems. An important part of that is advancing our understanding of how natural organic matter (NOM) interacts with solutes, sediments, and microorganisms to influence water quality in pristine and polluted environments.
