Research interest

In the broadest sense my research interest is the holistic approach to the role of water-rock interaction within the system Earth, using chemical, biological, hydrogeological, mineralogical, mathematical, thermodynamic and engineering approaches. Of particular interests are:

    1) the source, transport and fate of potentially poisonous elements in natural and anthropogenic systems with emphasis on the elements: arsenic, molybdenum, cadmium and mercury

    2) development and enhancement of analytical methods in aqueous and litho-geochemistry

    3) the study of shallow-water hydrothermal systems.
