DEVELOPING INNOVATIVE ENVIRONMENTAL STRATEGIES
WATER | AIR | LAND
Our research addresses the complex environmental challenges facing terrestrial and aquatic environments including the Great Lakes and their watersheds
We investigate the causal link between multiple interacting stressors in the environment with a focus on understanding the factors that affect the fate and transport of contaminants and nutrients in water, on land, and in the air.
We have a multidisciplinary focus on research and graduate training using state-of-the-art laboratories, core facilities, and dedicated research infrastructure that spans across conventional disciplinary boundaries.
We work closely with experts in related fields including biology, geology, chemistry, engineering, genetics and ecology in order to both enrich our graduate students and to work with a holistic understanding of complex research problems.
Our research has been highlighted by a number of media outlets including BBC Earth, Washington Post, and CBC.
We strive to improve our understanding of the relationships between the mechanisms responsible for contaminant degradation and nutrient cycling to develop new tools to characterize the fate and transport of pollution in complex environmental systems. A comprehensive understanding of the key chemical and environmental factors that influence the measurement, monitoring, and identification of pollution sources will lead to better policy decisions and long-term protection of our resources.
