Research Interests

Biogeochemical cycling of trace metals and metalloids:
microbial redox cycling; field studies of metal redox cycling, mobilization, and sequestration

Mineral weathering and reactions at mineral surfaces:

mechanisms and kinetics of dissolution and precipitation reactions; macroscopic, spectroscopic, and modeling studies of sorption processes

Sustainable management of water resources, supply and infrastructure

Water treatment processes for removal of inorganic contaminants:
role of sorption in contaminant removal; design of novel sorbents

Research Group
The Hering research group is a "virtual" research group (i.e., all group members are jointly supervised by Prof. Hering and another member of the Eawag research staff).  

Current Ph.D. students:

  • Anna-Caterina Senn (ETHZ) Ph.D. co-supervisor (supervisor: A. Vögelin)
  • Jagannath Biswakarma (ETHZ) Ph.D. co-supervisor (supervisor: S. Hug)
Current post-doctoral researcher:
  • Dr. Simon Maag (effective 01.10.2015)
