Bacterial spreading in soils

Welcome to the Environmental Transport Lab (ET-Lab) led by Dr. Judy Yang. Our lab studies the transport of water, soil, chemicals, and bacteria in nature. We design flume, microfluidic, and other experiments to simulate complex natural environment. We apply fluid mechanics and biogeochemistry to understand and predict sediment transport and landscape evolution,contaminants and carbon transport in soil, as well as bacterial spreading. Motivated doctoral students, undergraduates, and postdoc scholars are welcome to directly contact Judy (
