Talk Title: “Interaction of arsenic with coprecipitated Fe(II,III) (hydr)oxides generated by Fe(0) electrolysis”
Dr. Case M. van Genuchten (https://www.uu.nl/staff/CMvangenuchten) is a research fellow in the Faculty of Geosciences at Utrecht University in the Netherlands.  Dr. van Genuchten received a BSc in 2008 from San Diego State University and a MSc (2009) and PhD (2013) from the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of California, Berkeley.  Following his PhD, Dr. van Genuchten spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher in the Environmental Geochemistry Laboratory at the University of Lausanne (CH). The major question driving Dr. van Genuchten’s research involves how nano- and sub-nanoscale processes, including mineral dissolution/precipitation, ion sorption, and electron transfer, govern the transport and bioavailability of major elements (P, Ca, Si) and toxic trace contaminants (As, Pb, Cd).  Specifically, he is interested in applying wet-chemical methods and advanced synchrotron-based characterization techniques to generate fundamental knowledge that can be applied in the design of water and soil remediation strategies, particularly in decentralized, resource-scarce communities.  Currently, Dr. van Genuchten is funded by a Veni grant from the Applied and Engineering Sciences Division of the Dutch Organization for Scientific Research to investigate decentralized arsenic treatment using mixed valent Fe(II,III) (hydr)oxides generated by Fe(0) electrolysis.
