About Professor Balwant Singh

Prof Balwant Singh's research passion is to find a sustainable and cost-effective solution to remediate soils contaminated with trace elements (so-called heavy metals).

More specifically the research focuses on trace element substitution in iron oxides, reaction mechanisms of trace elements on soil minerals and remediation of contaminated soils using plants (phyto-remediation) and other ameliorants (e.g. iron oxides). Prof Balwant Singh's research group employs state of the art techniques including synchrotron based XAFS, XRD and XRF in many of their research projects.
