Research

Soil and Water Chemistry, Environmental Quality and Remediation, Risk Assessment, Green Technology Development

Research in my group reflects my firm belief in a holistic, multidisciplinary framework for developing a sustainable environment. My approach is from the angle of earth system science that requires the applications of geochemical, biological, and engineering principles in solving issues related to the environmental quality and its ultimate effect on ecosystem and human health. My students, postdocs, and I are engaged in research that can be broadly classified in the following categories:

(1) Application of Soil and Water Chemistry Principles in Environmental Contamination Characterization: Characterization and quantification of various physico-chemical processes that determine the behavior of inorganic and organic contaminants in soil, water, and sediments; the relevant processes and the interrelationships among them over a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. Long-term goals are to develop fundamental understanding of processes based on experimental and theoretical investigations, as well as to modify predictive capabilities of the expected system behavior, management, and control technologies. Includes geochemical modeling and spectroscopic evaluation of processes at liquid-solid-biota interface.

(2) Application of Environmental Chemistry, Environmental Engineering, and Sustainability Principles in Green Technology Development: Evaluation of field, greenhouse, and experimental data (macroscopic and microscopic) to investigate human bioavailability, aqueous and solid phase speciation, dissolution, mineralization, precipitation and adsorption mechanisms of organic and inorganic chemicals in soil, water, and sediments. Development of “green” remediation technologies guided by sustainability principles. Emphasis on investigating environmental behavior, fate, and remediation of emerging contaminants that have not been studied extensively.

(3) Application of Soil and Water Chemistry, Plant Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Principles in Sustainable Environmental Remediation: In collaboration with plant scientists, evaluation of bioremediation and phytoremediation alternatives to cleanup environmental contaminants in soil and water. Employ biochemical and molecular biological techniques to study the mechanisms of organics and metals biodegradation and detoxification in plant systems.

(4) Risk Assessment: Estimation of ecological and human health risk for environmental decision-making, especially those involving protective and clean-up standards for contaminants in the environment.

Ongoing research projects include:

Sustainable management of polluted road runoff using green best management practices (GBMP).

Green technology development for nutrient and metals reduction in coastal waters.

Sustainable remediation of PFAS-contaminated soil and water.

Removal of emerging contaminants (pharmaceuticals, explosive constituents) from domestic and industrial wastewater using accumulator plants in constructed wetlands settings.

Energy generation (ethanol, biogas) from spent biomass utilized for phytoremediation of organic contaminants.

Development of new varieties of biochar and their application in environmental remediation.

Phytoremediation of soil-lead in residential properties and brownfield sites.

Sustainable reclamation of acid mine drainage impacted coal mining sites.

Application of advanced oxidation processes for removal of metals, organics, and emerging contaminants in groundwater.

I am a professor of environmental engineering at Stevens Institute Technology, Hoboken, New Jersey and founding director of the Sustainability Management graduate program in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Ocean Engineering. I am also an adjunct professor at Michigan Technological University. Between 2008 and 2015, I was professor of environmental sciences and founding director of the Environmental Science and Management PhD program at Montclair State University, Montclair, New Jersey. Prior to that, I served as assistant professor (2000-04), associate professor (2004-08) and associate dean of Graduate Studies and Research at the University of Texas at San Antonio. I graduated with a PhD in geochemistry from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and worked as a postdoctoral scientist in soil and water chemistry at the University of Florida (1998-00). Thus far, I have advised/advising 30+ PhD and MS/ME students, and have trained/training 16 postdoctoral research associates. I have published 150+ journal articles, 20 book chapters, and 250+ technical abstracts and conference proceedings. I have authored/edited 3 books including one of the first textbooks in environmental management (An Integrated Approach to Environmental Management; Wiley; 2015), and have so far generated ~$15 million in grant funding as PI or Co-PI to support the research activities of my group. I am a Fellow of the Geological Society of America and a Fellow of Soil Science Society of America. I am a founding principal of SIROM Scientific Solutions, LLC, an environmental R&D startup based in NJ. I am the founding editor-in-chief of Current Pollution Reports (Springer), technical editor of International Journal of Environmental Science and Technology (Springer), section editor-in-chief of Applied Sciences (MDPI), and associate editor of Environmental Technology and Innovation (Elsevier) and Frontiers in Soil Science (Frontiers).
