Research Interests:

My research covers a range of topics related to the development of analytical methodology for the determination of contaminants in different environmental compartments of water, air, biota and land using techniques such as high-resolution mass spectrometry (MS), tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) and 2D liquid chromatography (LC/LC). My research is used to assess animal and human exposure to chemicals. I utilize bioassay directed fractionation to isolate and identify biologically active substances and I address unknowns through the development of new strategies in data interpretation using spectral and chromatographic deconvolution and chemometric methods. My research involves the identification and analysis of disinfection by-products in waste and potable water and in the development of innovative water treatment technologies for the removal of micropollutants and by-products from water to mitigate exposure.
