  • My primary research interest is the study of the fate and transport of contaminants in the environment. Much of my work over the past 17 years has focused on the environmental fate of mercury. Specific research topics include investigation of spatial trends, and development of methods for measurement of air mercury concentrations and deposition; quantifying the release of mercury from natural and anthropogenic sources to the atmosphere; the role of plants in biogeochemical cycling of mercury; investigation of the fate of mercury pollution in waterways derived from natural sources and human activities; and understanding the magnitude of mercury releases from coal combustion products and mining waste and how to reduce these. I have two new research areas that include understanding sources of atmospheric ozone measured in rural areas of the Western United States, and metal cycling associated with biofuel production.
