Research Interests and responsibilities

Oil is a complex mixture of hundreds of thousands of chemicals which differs in their mobility, reactivity and toxicity.  Oil undergoes very complex transport and transformation processes in the natural environment. My research is primarily focused on understanding the behavior, fate, and toxicity of oil spills in the natural environment through chemical characterization of oil and oil products which is key to assess the effectiveness of oil spill response techniques. This research is based within the  Multi-Partner Oil Spill Research Initiative (MPRI) program in where, I am involved in coordination of MPRI chemical analysis, development and implementation of analytical methods, QA/QC protocols and interlaboratory calibration exercises.
