My research area is in the development of new methods for analyzing various over-the-counter (OTC) medications.  Specifically, I am interested in using chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques in developing new methods for analyzing OTC’s.  For example, last year my research student and I worked on developing a convenient and sensitive fluorescent detection technique to measure the concentration of nutraceuticals in aqueous solutions.  We have also investigated the use of capillary electrophoresis as a technique for the quantitative determination of alkaloids in OTC medications.
