Biography: 

Bonnie Lyon Marion is a member of the Environmental Sustainability Lab research group and the Integrated Multiphase Environmental Systems Laboratory. Her Ph.D. research focused on the formation of disinfection byproducts during combined UV-chlorine/chloramine drinking water treatment. Her past research has included monitoring techniques for predicting disinfection byproduct formation, toxicity of water contaminant mixtures, and advanced oxidation processes. Her current research investigates the impact of porous media heterogeneity, water chemistry, and surface coatings on the fate and transport of engineered nanomaterials, as well as techniques for enhancing nanomaterial mobility for subsurface applications.
