    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsNatural clays and nanosized metal oxide and hydroxides control the fate and transport of contaminants and nutrients in soils and aqueous environments. Progress in this area will have substantial implications for addressing critical issues facing society related to air and water quality, contaminant transmission, climate change, etc. My research interests are founded on two main pillars: 1) nanoparticle formation and transformation processes and 2) chemical processes governing their reaction with contaminants and nutrients under Earth-surface environmental conditions. My current research investigates the role of soil nanoparticles in the formation and dispersion of hexavalent chromium during and after wildfires.

    William Wrigley Professor, Professor at the Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability, Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute, at the Freeman Spogli Institute and Professor, by courtesy, of Economics and of Earth System Science

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsResearch Activities:
    My research focuses on the environmental and equity dimensions of intensive food production systems, and the food security dimensions of low-input systems. I have been involved in a number of field-level research projects around the world and have published widely on issues related to climate impacts on agriculture, distributed irrigation systems for diversified cropping, nutrient use and loss in agriculture, biotechnology, aquaculture and livestock production, biofuels development, food price volatility, and food policy analysis.

    Teaching Activities:
    I teach courses on the world food economy, food and security, aquaculture science and policy, human society and environmental change, and food-water-health linkages. These courses are offered to graduate and undergraduate students through the departments of Earth System Science, Economics, History, and International Relations.
