Academic Interests and Plans
My academic interests include the fate of anthropogenic chemicals, particularly PCBs and other semivolatile organic contaminants in water and air, transformations of organic contaminants in natural and engineered environments, and the development of techniques for predicting the reactivity of compounds from their thermodynamic and structural properties, including QSAR development and insight derived from computational chemical analysis.
