Work and Research

My research interests are organic and inorganic chemicals in the environment. I quantify these chemicals in soils, sediment, fish, water, and air. I aim to understand how these chemicals move around in the environment, what I can learn from them, and what their impacts might be. For organic chemicals, my research interests are primarily focus on current-use pesticides, brominated flame retardants, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and persistent organic pollutants. To better understand the fate of these chemicals, we conduct field work (often in remote locations), perform laboratory experiments (e.g. measurement of partition coefficients), and use chemical fate models. I also quantify organic biomarkers, such as alkanes and alkenones, in marine and lake sediments.
