Professor Andrew Meharg


Andrew’s research is on the biogeochemical cycling of contaminants in agronomic & natural ecosystems focusing on:

  • Pollutant fluxes into & out of ecosystems
  • How organisms are exposed to contaminants
  • How those contaminants are assimilated & metabolized
  • Adaptive strategies to avoid/detoxify contaminants.

Andrew has also concentrated specifically on Arsenic using advanced speciation techniques, to investigate its environmental behavior.
