Areas of Interest

Professor Hixon’s overarching research interests revolve around how processes at the mineral-water interface control actinide behavior. By using a combination of wet chemistry, instrumental, and modeling techniques, members of the Hixon group are able to understand actinide aqueous speciation, the properties of mineral surfaces, and how the two interact.
