Research Summary

My research is in the disciplines of chemical oceanography and environmental chemistry. In particular, my lab applies analytical chemistry techniques to marine and freshwater systems.  Projects that my research students work on include (1) the transport and fate of road salt in Rhode Island freshwater systems, (2) biogeochemical cycling in marine waters, and (3) quantitative analysis of chlorophyll in marine environments.
