Biography

Dr. Farrell graduated from Stanford University in 1993 and joined the department the following year. He recently received the Environmental Science and Technology Excellence in Review Award. His research interests include contaminant transport through soil and groundwater and abiotic transformations of chlorinated solvents.

Research

Contaminant transport through soil and groundwater, abiotic transformations of chlorinated solvents in groundwater environments, mechanisms and kinetics of organic contaminant adsorption/desorption on soils and sediments.
