Research interests

The research project involves the study of solute transport and reaction-kinetics in a river-aquifer system, with a special attention to processes occurring in riverine sediments. The aim is to shed light on the effects of different stream and sediment configurations on trasport and reaction processes of nutrients and pollutants, in order to provide significant insights for stream biogeochemistry.
