Academic Appointments

Research Professor
Director, Trace Element Analysis Core

The broad theme of my research is the cycling of contaminant trace elements in the environment and the associated implications for human health.  In particular I specialize in arsenic and mercury biogeochemistry and on developing analytical coupled methods to probe the speciation and partitioning of trace elements in complex environmental and biological systems.
