Do nanoparticles have a major impact on contaminant relocation and toxicity? What is the behaviour and fate of organic pollutants in water and soils? How can we effectively protect and use our water resources in a sustainable manner?

These are some of the questions Prof. Hofmann´s group try to answer in the Department for Environmental Geosciences. To do so, we work in the fields of nanogeosciences, environmental pollutants and hydrogeology. Field experiments and controlled laboratory studies with the aid of modern high performance analytics and numeric modelling are our approach to solve these challenges.
