The Hatcher Group's research is in the area of environmental chemistry and geochemistry, emphasizing the origin and chemical transformations of plant-derived biopolymers in natural systems such as soils, peats, marine sediments and oceanic waters. Other interests include the studies of the interaction of organic contaminants with natural organic matter in soils, sediments and natural waters; The studies of the sequestration of nitrogen in the environment; Defining the origin, nature and reactivity of black carbon (soot, charcoal, etc.) in the environment; and conversion of algae biomass to biodiesel.
