Dr. Peters works in the areas of environmental chemistry and geochemistry. Her work focuses on the environmental challenges of subsurface energy technologies such as geologic sequestration of carbon dioxide, geothermal energy production, and hydrofracking for shale gas extraction. She applies a range of approaches to solving these problems, including laboratory experiments for experimental investigation, imaging via X-ray spectroscopy and electron microscopy, and mathematical modeling for reactive transport simulations. Dr. Peters has a very collaborative approach to research, working with colleagues at numerous other universities and national labs. Her research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, and the Environmental Protection Agency.
