Research Interests

Aspects of environmental chemistry, chemical oceanography, and atmospheric chemistry including:
(1) The transport of biologically important elements to oceans and estuaries via aerosols 
(2) The processes controlling aerosol elemental solubility and metal speciation 
(3) The fate of aerosol derived trace elements and nutrients in aquatic and marine systems
(4) The distribution of dissolved and particulate trace metals in marine systems
