Professional Interests

My professional interests involve the use of trace elemental patterns to distinguish natural from anthropogenic sources in the environment.  Metals in various media are analyzed by Atomic Absorption and the method can be applied to air, water or soil materials.  My research also involves the speciation of primarily metals to determine toxic effects and bioavailability.
