Scott Fendorf is interested in the chemical and biological processes that control the fate and movement of elements (ranging from carbon to arsenic to uranium) within soils, sediments, and surface waters. His research group examines the chemical environments that develop as a result of both biotic and abiotic processes, and they strive to account for the physical complexity and hydrology of natural settings. A particular emphasis is given on reactions which change the oxidation state (redox reactions) and associated speciation of contaminants/nutrients or solids that control their partitioning.
