Prof. Fareed Ahmad Khan works in the field of Ecology and Environmental Botany. The overarching theme of my research is to understand the effect of Environmental Chemical Pollutants at the ecosystem level. More specifically my research group works on the biogeochemistry of trace metals/ metalloids and engineered nanomaterials in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. We use the combination of field and laboratory-scale experiments and advanced statistical methods to try and advance our fundamental understanding of fate, uptake, transport, and toxicokinetics of Environmental Chemical Pollutants in aquatic and terrestrial systems.
