I teach Analytical Methods and Instrumentation (Chem 43) and an advanced seminar on Topics in Environmental Chemistry (Chem 103). I am also involved in the general chemistry curriculum, teaching General Chemistry (Chem 10) and Chemistry in Context: Applying Chemistry to Society (Chem 1).
I have active projects to investigate the chirality of pesticide biodegradation and to map the chemical ecology of beetle secretions. In addition, I am interested in using ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) for environmental analysis. IMS gives much faster separations (millisecond time scale) than conventional chromatography. Interfacing with mass spectrometry gives further information about species identification. Please see my group page for more information.
