My research explores biogeochemistry and hydrology across natural landscapes ranging from wetlands to head-water streams. Investigations span the mineral-water interface to sub-catchment scale and I focus on how hydrological and biogeochemical processes interact to control water quality. Field-based studies are augmented by laboratory experiments to shed light on the co-cycling, speciation and transport of redox sensitive elements (Fe, S, C) and trace elements (ie. Arsenic) in the environment.
