My research is focused on the sources, transport, and fate
of metals in the environment. My interests range from how
metals are concentrated into ore deposits in the earth’s
crust, to their use and value in society, and particularly
the fate and transport of metal contamination from mine tailings
and ore refinement. As a student, I concentrated my studies
in isotope geochemistry and ore deposits. My most resent research
has applied the use of isotopic tracers to fingerprint the
source of metal contamination in San Francisco Bay and in
the Clark Fork River, MT. I work in conjunction with other
members of the project whose research goals are to determine
the bioavailability and trophic transfer of metals in aquatic
food webs. Determining the sources of metal contamination
is essential to understanding and managing the sediment and
water quality in an aquatic environment.
