Ecosystems Research

Caroline Tebes Stevens

The focus of my research is the use of mathematical modeling techniques to study coupled effects of physical transport, partitioning, and chemical and biological reaction processes on chemical behavior in the environment.  From 2002–2009, my projects have been in three areas: modeling and field sampling to study fate and transport of nutrients in an agricultural application of a batch reaction model to interpret results of in-house laboratory studies on the metabolism of xenobiotics; and development of a QSAR-based model to predict biotransformation rates of organic compounds.
