 Research Interests

I'm an ecological engineer orientated towards applied biogeochemistry. My focus has been characterizing water quality issues and advancing sustainable solutions to restore ecosystems and safeguard human health, often in international contexts. This has generally entailed creating settings for naturally occurring biogeochemical processes to proceed optimally (e.g., floating treatment wetlands, bioreactors, stormwater wetlands). As the director of the Baruch Marine Field Laboratory, I am particularly interested in improving coastal water management.

Specific fields of inquiry include:

  • Treatment wetlands
  • Wetland biogeochemistry
  • Water management with living systems
  • Aquatic pollutant dynamics
  • Mine water remediation
  • Ecosystem restoration
  • Appropriate technologies for developing regions
  • Coastal best management practices

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
