Biogeochemistry of Atmospheric Selenium (Se)
Selenium (Se) is an essential dietary nutrient with an important atmospheric compartment to its biogeochemical cycle. Understanding the atmospheric fate of Se can help produce Se deposition maps for the agricultural sector to better identify areas that may be at risk for Se deficiency. Our research group is interested in studying the sources, sinks and transformation mechanisms of Se in the atmosphere. We use large data sets, experiments and field work in our approaches and work closely with chemical transport modelers.
