Welcome to the Parikh Lab!

The Environmental Soil Chemistry Group is led by Sanjai J. Parikh and housed in the Department of Land, Air and Water Resources at the University of California, Davis. The primary objective of our group is to examine biogeochemical processes that influence soil and water resources that have bearing on environmental remediation, food safety and security, and soil health. Our research addresses both temporal and spatial variability, scaling from field studies to interfacial processes occurring at mineral and organic surfaces to investigate the sorption, transport, and degradation of environmental contaminants, nutrients, biomolecules, and bacteria.
