Dr. Boris Faybishenko is Staff Scientist of Earth Sciences Division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Conducted field site characterization, monitoring and modeling investigations of coupled water and gas flow and chemical transport (organics, radionuclides, and metals) in unsaturated (vadose zone) and saturated (groundwater) soils and fractured rock. These investigations have been related to environmental protection, bioremediation, natural attenuation, long-term monitoring of contaminated areas, and optimization of coupled energy-water systems under present-day and future climatic conditions. Conducted investigations at several organically and radioactively contaminated sites in the USA (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, CA; Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore, CA; Idaho National Laboratory, Idaho; Savannah River Site, Georgia; Rifle site, CO; McClellan Air Force Site, Sacramento, CA; Yucca Mountain, NV; Hanford Site, WA) and in other countries—Ukraine, Russia, Uzbekistan, and Argentina. Authored and co-authored over 60 peer-reviewed scientific papers, 12 books and book chapters, over 100 abstracts of scientific presentations, more than 50 reports, and 8 patents. Currently is editing 2 books for American Geophysical Union and Wiley Publisher.
