Research Interests
My research focuses primarily on the development, application, and use of optical-based sensors for environmental chemical measurements. My research aims to develop novel sensors that can be deployed for in situ measurements in both aqueous and atmospheric environments. I use several types of spectroscopy, including laser-based techniques, in order to work in different environments and to detect different types of species. The targets of my work range from trace gases to heavy metals in sediments. Through the use of gas extraction techniques, many techniques, such as laser-based spectroscopy, can be adapted for in situ analyses.
