Lucien Stolze is a postdoctoral researcher in the Earth and Environmental Sciences Area of Berkeley Lab. His research approach combines experimental and modeling techniques to offer a quantitative understanding on the reactive transport of solutes, nutrients cycling and mineral evolution in the subsurface.
Lucien holds a PhD from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) where he investigated the impact of chemical and electrostatic interactions at the surface/solution interface and mineral transformation on the fate and transport of contaminants in multicomponent systems.
His current work focuses on the physical and biogeochemical processes controlling the chemical weathering of shale bedrock and the related exports of nutrients and solutes in a mountainous watershed of Colorado. This research is part of the Watershed Function SFA project.
