Welcome to the Borch Laboratory homepage! Our research is focused on topics such as water treatment and reuse for agricultural irrigation, forest fire impacts on surface water quality, permafrost thawing effects on carbon and nutrient cycling, and soil/water quality impacts on crop health. Dr. Borch is a Professor in the Department of Soil and Crop Sciences (home dept.), Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (joint), and Department of Chemistry (joint). Thus, our group is very interdisciplinary which allows us to pursue complex agricultural, environmental, and industrial projects. Please send Dr. Borch an email if you are interested in joining our team or if you have questions regarding our research.
