Interest Areas

Dr. Soupir's research focuses on soil and water quality, nonpoint source pollution control, watershed management, and water quality monitoring. She uses both lab and field scale studies to examine the occurrence, fate and transport of pathogens, pathogen indicators and contaminants of emerging environmental concern (CoEECs) such as antibiotics and antibiotic-resistant bacteria to surface and groundwater systems. Findings from these studies have implications to improve the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) development and implementation process, identify the impact of landuse practices on water quality, and develop management practices to reduce pollutant transport.
