Lisa Axe’s research interests are in biogeochemical processes in environmental systems. Research activities in her group include studies on contaminant speciation, mobility, bioavailability, transport, and fate. In studying natural attenuating processes and developing novel treatment systems, Dr. Axe’s group has produced and investigated nanostructured, microporous iron and manganese oxide coatings on silica, clay, and more recently biofilms. Her group employs a suite of complementary techniques to, for example, fundamentally understand and model molecular mechanisms that can then be included in modeling treatment and/or natural processes. One such method is X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) where speciation, distribution, and sorption mechanisms are being investigated in contaminated systems as well as in potentially stabilized, treated sediments.
