SPECIALIZATION

Environmental chemistry and mass spectrometry.


Named Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council (MSMC)'s RESEARCHER OF THE YEAR at MSMC's Annual Research Meeting, Jefferson City, MO, February 2002.


RESEARCH INTERESTS

Research interests of the group are quite diverse. These include gas phase reaction kinetics, application of supercritical fluid in organic analysis, organic mass spectrometry, development of integrated systems for ultra trace analysis. Research is also being carried out to monitor migration and transformation of pollutants in the environment, and development of novel pollution.
