Main fields of research and expertise

Laurie BOITHIAS has a 10-year experience in catchment-scale hydrology, erosion processes, and fate and transport of contaminants such as pathogens, pesticides, and pharmaceuticals. The overall aim of her research is to contribute to the interdisciplinary understanding of the biogeochemical functioning of hydrological systems and to ecosystem services assessment. Her approach is triple: field measurement, experimental studies and catchment-scale modelling.
