PhD, Environmental Systems, University of California, 2009

Rob Root is a geochemist with a research focus on molecular-scale mechanisms of biogeochemical cycling of nutrients and metal(loid)s in the environment and mineral weathering reactions at the rock-water interface. He specializes in the use of synchrotron X-ray spectroscopic and microscopic techniques to determine metal(loid) speciation from field and laboratory studies of environmental metal(loid) mobilization, sequestration/remediation, and bioaccessibility.
