Soil and Water Biogeochemistry

Education
Ph.D., 1998, Soil and Water Science, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL B.S., 1986, Limnology and Biology, University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL

Primary research interests are determining chemical, physical, and biological factors that regulate aerobic and anaerobic fate and transport of inorganic and organic contaminants in upland soils, wetlands, and aquatic environments, and characterizing the microbial communities responsible for contaminant transformation processes.

Classes

    Pls104 - PLANTS, SOILS, AND PEOPLE: A SCIENCE PERSPECTIVE. ; Credits - 3
    An introduction to the looming world food crisis and the scientific basis governing our ability to sustainably meet it. The course explores the biological and environmental constraints on food production, the ways that agricultural science has dealt with these in the past and possible ways for the future, as well as societal and cultural issues, such as population growth, human health, education, and food definitions, that also impact food security. Intended for any student interested in these topics..
    Instructors: Elisa M. DAngelo Tim Phillips
    Pls450g - Biogeochemistry; Credits - 3
    A course emphasizing the physical, chemical, and biochemical make-up of soil/water systems and the information required to predict chemical fate in the environment. Emphasis is placed on the relationships describing mineral solubility, sorption and exchange reactions, redox reactions, volatility, and biochemical cycling. Prereq: CHE 105, 107, 115; two semesters of college biology. (Same as NRC 450G.) .
    Instructors: Elisa M. DAngelo
