Research Interests

Dr. Adam Mumford is a geomicrobiologist who studies the interactions between microbial communities and minerals in the shallow subsurface. His current work focuses on how microbial communities respond to inputs of produced water from unconventional oil and gas development, and how these responses can mitigate or exacerbate the risk posed by produced waters to streams and shallow aquifers.
