Research Assistant Professor, Nutrient Cycling in Freshwater Sediments

Chris ParsonsChris Parsons studies how naturally occurring chemical and biological processes in sediments and surface water change the chemical form, availability and toxicity of nutrients and contaminants.

His interdisciplinary work draws upon the fields of geochemistry, hydrology, microbiology, spectroscopy and thermodynamic modeling for a broad and applicable understanding of nutrients and inorganic contaminants cycling in freshwater environments.

Since 2012, Professor Parsons has been a member of the Ecohydrology Research Group under Canada Excellence Research Chair Philippe Van Cappellen.
