Dr. Demond’s research focuses on the physico-chemical aspects of movement and removal of organic contaminants from subsurface soils, in particular the change in soil properties due to contamination and remediation. Projects have included the assessment of exposure to soil contamination in vicinity of Dow Chemical in Midland, MI, evaluation of iron sulfide for use in permeable reactive barriers for the remediation of groundwater, impact of organic compound chemistry on subsurface transport, changes in the wettability of soil due to contact with waste, impact of municipal landfill leachate composition on clay properties, and reduction of permeability during surfactant-enhanced aquifer remediation.
