Harold F. Hemond

William E. Leonhard Professor



Research Interests:
The goal of the Hemond Lab is to generate knowledge of Earth's biochemical cycles, and the development of novel in-situ observational systems to study those cycles in heterogeneous, time-varying, or hazardous environments. The group also studies methods to interact sustainably with the natural environment to promote both human and environmental health.
