Gang Chen is an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. Prior to joining the CEE department in 2005, he was a postdoctoral research associate at the Center for Multiphase Environmental Research, Washington State University. He received his Ph.D. in Civil/Environmental Engineering from the University of Oklahoma in 2002.
Dr. Chen's principal research interests are in the area of microbial and chemical movement and reactions in porous media, environmental biotechnology, and surface chemistry.
Specific research areas:
- characterization of water flow and solute transport in the vadose zone
- modeling sorption kinetics and transport of microorganisms, organic chemicals, and colloids in the subsurface
- colloid-facilitated transport of radionuclides in unsaturated porous media
- bioremediation kinetics
- genetic microbiology
- interfacial phenomena
