Gorski, Chris
My research interest focus on mineral transformation processes, their environmental and geochemical implications, and their potential uses. To study this class of reactions, I use electrochemical techniques (to measure and control redox conditions), spectroscopy (to track mineralogical changes), microscopy, radioactive isotope tracers, and analytical techniques. For INGAR, I am interested in applying this knowledge to improve natural gas and oil recoveries and decreasing the environmental burden of extraction.
