Biography

With a focus on understanding surface chemical processes in natural and engineered systems and an emphasis on clean water, Harold Walker’s research areas include predicting the fate and transport of manufactured nanomaterials  and other “emerging” contaminants in groundwater, lakes, oceans, and water treatment plants. His work also includes developing novel membrane treatment systems, determining the vulnerability of the public to cyanotoxins in finished drinking water, and understanding the environmental implications of energy extraction and electricity production.
