We investigate the mobilization and transport of inorganic and organic contaminants in natural and anthropogenically polluted soil and aquatic environments. The goal is to develop the mechanistic geochemical understanding for the contaminant mobilization and transport for better tackling of current and future challenges of contamination of the soil and water resources and related ecosystems. Our research combines field and laboratory investigations to computer simulation (geochemical, litho-stratigraphic, and statistical modellings). Aqueous and solid phase speciation (redox and molecular) of trace elements by ion chromatography (IC) hyphenated with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS) and synchrotron based X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS: XANES & EXAFS), respectively, are the key components in our research programme.
