About the Contributor
Dr. Higgins is an Associate Professor in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Colorado School of Mines. His research focuses on the fate, transport, and bioaccumulation of emerging contaminants in aquatic and terrestrial systems. Current projects are examining the potential for bioaccumulation of organic contaminants into foodcrops from reclaimed water, the bioaccumulation of organic contaminants from biosolids-amended soils, the fate of perfluorochemicals in groundwater and organic contaminants in wastewater treatment plants, and analytical method development for tracking inorganic nanoparticles in environmental and biological media.
