Description

This research project will investigate the fundamental processes governing the environmental transport, transformation, and fate of Engineered Nanomaterials (ENMs) (primarily graphene derivatives and hybrid materials) in the aquatic environment. Proposed research may include experimental and modeling studies on ENM deposition on environmental surfaces, phototransformations, aquatic transport, and processes at the nano-bio interface. The project will complement ongoing EPA-Athens research on ENM transport and transformation processes.
