Work and Research

My research in environmental chemistry involves the identification and quantification of toxic chemicals such as heavy metals and xenobiotics in the environment and food items. I investigate the fate, transport properties and bioavailability/bioaccessibility of toxic metals and xenobiotic compounds in biota and the environmental. In the area of synthetic inorganic chemistry, I have focused on design, synthesis and characterization of ligands that have the ability to trap heavy metals and persistent organic pollutants in aqueous environment. My research work in nanotechnology focuses on chemical functionalization and electrospinning of polymers into nanofibers that are employed as sorbents for water purification purposes.
