Dr. Lamba conducts research in the area of water resources management. The goal of his research program is to improve fundamental knowledge of processes controlling the fate and transport of various contaminants (e.g., phosphorus, nitrogen, metals, and sediment) in agricultural and urbanized watersheds using field and laboratory based experiments, and watershed-level modeling.
