Research

My research interests involve five main areas: (1) geochemistry of mineral surfaces and their reactivity with aqueous metal complexes, organic matter, and microbial organisms; (2) structure and properties of natural and manufactured nanoparticles; (3) environmental chemistry/geochemistry of heavy metal and actinide contaminants; (4) experimental studies of carbon sequestration through mineral carbonation reactions; and (5) structure-property relationships of silicate liquids and glasses. The first four areas have bearing on the sequestration, transport, and transformations of environmental contaminants (e.g., mercury, lead, arsenic, uranium, and CO2) in aquatic systems, soils, and the atmosphere; the last focuses on the high-temperature geochemistry of silicate magmas and their trace elements. My students and I utilize various types of macroscopic and microscopic measurements, including the very intense x-rays from synchrotron radiation sources, as well as field investigations.

Teaching

I teach courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, including Earth Materials (GES 102), the basic sophomore-level course required of GES majors on minerals and rocks and the processes that form and modify them; Environmental Geochemistry (GES 170), a senior-, first-year graduate-level course on the chemistry of the environment; and Physics and Chemistry of Minerals and Mineral Surfaces (GES 261), a graduate-level course on my specialty. I also occasionally teach a sophomore seminar on environment and human health as well as graduate seminars on current topics in environmental geochemistry and mineral surface and aqueous geochemistry.
