My principal research interests are in the areas of measurement and modeling of organic and inorganic chemical movement and reactions in field soils; development and testing of organic chemical screening models; characterization of the spatial variability of soil physical and chemical properties; and evaluating volatilization losses of organic compounds. At present, I am conducting research in global water management; unstable flow of water in soil; measurement and modeling of selenium fate in soil; management of saline water; and degradation during transport of volatile organic compounds. I have published 220 professional papers and written five books in my areas of research.
