Chemical Sciences

My work is broadly centered on the subject of environmental analytical chemistry. In my current work, I explore qualitative and quantitative techniques for identifying and accurately analyzing novel per- and poly-fluorinated alkyl compounds in various environmental samples. I make use of high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with high resolution orbitrap mass spectrometry, and HPLC-ICP-MS/MS.
