My research focuses on developing methods to analyze persistent organic pollutants in various environmental matrices. The optimized methods are then applied to measure chemical exposures in different populations such as humans and wildlife.
My research is focused on novel synthetic approaches to organic/inorganic hybrid materials using combined principles of polymer chemistry and coordination-driven self-assembly. The goal of this work is to gain a better understanding of interactions at the polymer/inorganic interface, and to obtain highly porous, mechanically robust functional materials that can ultimately be used for industrial applications such as CO2 capture.
My research focuses on designing, synthesizing and the characterization of Fe(III) macrocyclic complexes as T1 MRI contrast agents. I utilize NMR and MRI methods for characterization of complexes in vitro and in mice.
My research focuses on elucidating lipid involvement in cellular senescence. An improved understanding of lipid function has the potential to introduce druggable lipid-related protein targets, paving the way for new therapeutic strategies.
My research focuses on the development of mass spectrometry based analytical methods than can facilitate identification, structural elucidation and trace quantification of micropollutants in environmental samples.
My research revolves around the synthesis, functionalization and application of 1,3-dienes to ultimately be applied towards the total synthesis of nannocystin A. My recent publication is an example of functionalizing 1,3 dienes that will be utilized en route to my final goal.
My current research involves creating core/shell nanoparticle architectures and enhancing the visible and NIR emission for in vivo imaging and sensing.
My research is about looking at the global occurrence of micropollutants such as pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and other chemicals of emerging concern in the aquatic environment using liquid chromatography mass spectrometry. We collaborate with engineers and other scientists to study the development of environmental antimicrobial resistance, pharmaceutical removal efficiencies of wastewater treatment plants, and the eco-toxicological effects of these compounds on aquatic life.
