Dr. Zhong's research is focused on transport and transformation of contaminants in natural porous media and contaminated site remediation. Specific research interests include:(1) inter-phase mass transfer behaviors (e.g. sorption/desorption, NAPL dissolution, phase-phase partition); (2) coupled processes of contaminant mass transfer, transport and transformation; (3) enhanced abiotic transformation (e.g. chemical oxidation or reduction) and biotransformation processes in porous media; (4) colloid and nano-particle transport; (5) role of surfactants in enhanced removal of HOC or metal contaminants and application of surfactants; (6) innovative methods or technologies for in situ remediation of contaminated soil or groundwater.
