Current Position: 
Post Doctoral Fellow, Skagg's School of Phamacy, University of Colorado
Research Interest/Focus: 

> Trace organic analytical method development ( Gas and liquid chromatography, mass spectrometry).

> Measurement of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) that have significant impact on the human nervous and endocrine system.

> Analytical method development for the analysis of xenobiotics in metabolic samples.

> Fate of bioavaiable polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in environmental compartments

> Developing tools to detect the photodegradation and photomodification of bioavailable PAHs mixtures in the environment
