Emmanuel's research interest is focused on contaminant transport in the hydrological setting. His recent work looked into contaminant transport due to the interaction between surface water and groundwater systems where he integrated field and modeling study on cyanotoxin transport from Lake Erie to coastal aquifers. Following his interest, he is now a Ph.D. student in Hydrogeology working with Dr. Rishi Parashar on virus transport modeling in the porous media. Presentations Cobbinah, E*. & Liu, G. (2022).
