Welcome to the Ganguli Lab at California State University, Northridge (CSUN)! We are part of the Department of Geological Sciences and the new CSUN Water Science Program.

We study the transport and fate of contaminants in aquatic environments. Many of our projects focus on the element mercury (Hg), which changes its form and toxicity in response to geochemical, biological, and physical processes. Factors such as temperature and nutrient gradients influence these processes and can vary over a range of time scales (e.g., tidal, diurnal, seasonal, climactic). Given the complexity of natural systems, our work involves scientists from a range disciplines such as biogeochemistry, hydrogeology, and geomorphology. We are also developing ties with the Department of Political Science and will begin considering issues related to water policy. The projects we tackle are field and lab intensive, making them ideal for student involvement. If you are interested in learning more, please contact me - we are currently recruiting undergraduate and master's students.
