Hi! I’m Rich Carbonaro, Professor of Chemical Engineering at Manhattan College and Consultant for the Environmental Science and Engineering firm, Mutch Associates. This is my professional website. It provides some details on my research projects, and professional experiences.
I’ve worked as an environmental engineer for approximately twenty years, specializing in the fate and transport of contaminants in soil, groundwater and sediments. My research focuses on the fate and transformations of organic and inorganic chemicals in engineered and natural environments. At Mutch Associates, I consult on a wide range of environmental engineering topics, including remediation of organic and inorganics in soil and groundwater, water quality, contaminant fate and transport, groundwater geochemistry, and environmental forensics. In my position of Professor of Chemical Engineering at Manhattan College, I conduct research and teach courses on environmental chemistry, chemical kinetics, and mathematical modeling of chemical processes. .
