Current Research Interest
The impact of redox conditions on controlling the breakdown of lignocellulosic materials into labile carbon for denitrifying microorganisms; the deliberate manipulation of redox dynamics to enhance denitrification rates; the influence of the molecular composition of natural organic matter on its reactivity as a complexing ligand for arsenic and the impact this has on arsenic bioavailability and toxicity in the environment; the impact of hydrological-driven redox conditions in reservoirs on the speciation and solubility of manganese in the water column
