Dr Mahdiyeh Salmanzadeh

Research Fellow

Qualifications: BEng. Civil Engineering, MEng. Environmental Engineering, Ph.D. Environmental Science

Research Interests

My research focuses on trace metals kinetics and speciation in the terrestrial environment and aquatic systems, source tracking of elements using "stable" isotope analysis, the interaction between natural organic matter and trace elements in soil, water, and minerals, the long-term accumulation of heavy metals in soil and sediment as well as heavy metal immobilisation.
