Overview of Research :

The broad theme of my research is the cycling of contaminant trace elements in the environment and the associated implications for human health.  In particular I specialize in arsenic and mercury geochemistry and on developing analytical coupled methods to probe the speciation and partitioning of As and Hg in complex environmental systems.  Emerging foci are the potential role of climate change on the availability of mercury in estuarine and terrestrial systems and human exposure to arsenic through food.
