Sujata Ray

PhD:
Princeton University (2007)
Area of Interest:
Environmental Science and Engineering
Email ID:

Research Interest:

Sujata studies the fate and transport of contaminants in the environment, particularly pesticides, in soils, surface waters and groundwater. She explores pathways to sustainable use of these chemicals to minimize their impact on human health and water quality in a potentially changing climate. She is interested in the toxicity and health impacts of these chemicals, particularly their occurrence in human milk and potential impact on milk supply for infants. She also is initiating a research project on the vulnerability of surface waters and soils in India to acidic deposition, taking into account the soil chemistry, hydrology, biogeochemical cycles and potential climate change.
