jose cerratoDr. Jose Cerrato, Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering at UNM, will present at Science on Tap at O’Niell’s, 4310 Central Ave SE, on April 5, 2018, from 5:30 – 6:30 pm.  His topic will be, “Afraid of Complex Environmental Systems?  Surface Science: a New Hope.”

Investigation of environmental systems is often complex due to the simultaneous interaction of physical, chemical, and biological processes.  However, most of these processes happen at the interface of water and solids which offer an opportunity to integrate conventional water chemistry techniques with advanced surface science tools.  This conversation intends to motivate students and the general audience to recognize the invaluable opportunities that surface science tools offer to advance the current knowledge about the fate and transport of chemicals of concern in environmental systems.
