Assistant Professor and
Clapp Building, Room 367
|Current Postion||I am staff member in the UM Geosciences Department where I direct the Environmental Biogeochemistry Laboratory (EBL). I am also Research Assistant Professor, and I teach courses in Environmental Geochemistry.|
1997 Montana State University, Crop and Soil Sciences
am interested in processes that control the mobility and bioavailability
of arsenic and heavy metals in the environment. Several of my studies
focused on the fate of arsenic in a variety of ecosystems such as constructed
wetlands or hydrothermal springs in Yellowstone National Park. More recently,
my research focus has shifted toward ecosystem-wide effects of contaminants.
We started exciting research projects that look at heavy metals exposure
in birds of prey such as ospreys and eagles as these top-of-the-food-chain
predators can tell us about the general health of the ecosystems they
live in. Check the EBL and Project Osprey websites for more current updates.
