More Information: Kevin Rosso is a Staff Scientist and an Associate Director in the Chemical and Materials Sciences Division at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and in the Environmental Dynamics and Simulation Directorate, Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory at PNNL. Dr. Rosso’s research is centered on elucidating the relationships between the atomic and electronic structure of crystalline materials with their reactivity and physical properties, particularly at interfaces, using various concepts and tools of surface science, chemistry, solid state physics, and crystal chemistry. His recent research is focused on unraveling rates and mechanisms of biogeochemical electron transfer towards a better understanding of subsurface contaminant transport. Dr. Rosso has published 80 peer-reviewed publications and several book chapters on various molecular-scale aspects of mineral/water and mineral/microbe interface chemistry.
