Talk title: Towards imaging the spatial distribution of geochemical heterogeneities and arsenic sources
Massimo Rolle is an environmental engineer and received his PhD in 2006 from the Polytechnic University of Turin (Italy). He has been postdoc at the University of Tuebingen (Germany) from 2007-2011 and Marie Curie Fellow at Stanford University (USA) from 2011-2014. Since 2014 is Associate Professor of hydrogeochemistry and hydrogeology at the Technical University of Denmark. He has received several individual fellowships and he has an extensive publication record in international peer-reviewed journals in the fields of environmental science and water resources. His research focuses on subsurface investigation and, in particular, on the study of mixing processes in aquifer systems, reactive transport in groundwater, biogeochemical modeling, hydrochemistry, and on natural attenuation and engineered remediation of contaminated sites. His research approach aims at combining experimental and modeling techniques for a quantitative understanding of physical and (bio)chemical processes affecting the fate and transport of organic and inorganic contaminants in groundwater systems.
