University of Oklahoma
Tohren Kibbey is David Ross Boyd Professor and Lloyd G. and Joyce Austin Presidential Professor in the School of Civil Engineering and Environmental Science, where he has been since 1999. His research interests center around topics related to surface and interfacial interactions in complex natural and engineered environmental systems. Areas of particular interest include physical-chemical interactions in complex systems, behaviors in unsaturated soils/multiple-phase systems, and numerical model development for prediction and design in complex systems. Recent work has included studying the interactions of nanoparticles with biological surfaces, transport in capillary-held water films on grain surfaces, and the use of machine learning for source identification of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in environmental samples.
