Welcome to the Holliday Lab!
My lab uses analytical chemistry to answer environmental questions. In particular, our focus is on using ion mobility spectrometry - a technique for fast, gas-phase separations - to investigate the chiral effects of pesticides.
Most of this work is completed by Swarthmore undergraduate students, who have the opportunity to work independently and make contributions to published research.
In addition to research, I teach a course on analytical methods and instrumentation (Chem 43) and an upper year seminar on topics in environmental chemistry (Chem 103). I am also active in the general chemistry curriculum, teaching general chemistry (Chem 10) and a chemistry course for non-majors (Chem 1). I am involved in the Environmental Studies program at Swarthmore.
