Emily E Woodward


My research is focused on the fate and transport of agrochemicals in the environment. My project locations range from the Midwestern US to California's Central Valley. I monitor and measure pesticides and fertilizer additives in soil, agricultural runoff, and streams in agriculturally dominated watersheds. I also work on developing methods to measure new and/or understudied agrochemicals in soil and water matrices.
