Urban Soils

Our lab explores a number of urban environmental sustainability issues, and aims to find green and sustainable solutions for challenging environmental issues in cities. We integrate field monitoring, lab analysis and experiments, as well as statistical analysis and computer modeling to study complex environmental problems, sometime coupled with studies on social dimensions. Most of our work is revolved around urban soils and its functions in natural and human modified systems in New York City. We work closely with agencies and community organizations to carry out research projects.
