Alan Rabideau’s research examines groundwater contamination and remediation in a variety of settings. Most recently, his work included the West Valley Demonstration Project, an inactive nuclear fuel processing facility 30 miles south of Buffalo.

Rabideau, PhD, PE, also leads UB's Ecosystem Restoration through Interdisciplinary Exchange (ERIE), a collection of academic programs and research projects that advance the science and policy of ecosystem restoration, with an emphasis on the Great Lakes and Western New York.

He is a member of a National Academy of Science panel that explores ways to improve hazardous waste management at thousands of sites where subsurface contaminants pose risks to drinking water.
