My research interests cover a broad range of environmental, technological and fundamental problems at solid surfaces and are directed at understanding kinetics and thermodynamics of chemical reactions at solid-liquid interfaces.
My current research projects focus on the study of interfacial chemical dynamics related to problems in environmental chemistry. Understanding the complex surface processes (e.g., diffusion, adsorption/desorption, dissolution/precipitation, and charge transfer reactions) that occur at the boundary between solid and fluid phases is the general goal of my laboratory experiments.
