My interests cover a wide range of areas including redox reactions in the environment, trace element speciation in marine waters and sediments, biogeochemical processes in marine environments, application of molecular orbital theory to geochemical processes, electrochemistry and microelctrode technology.
Marine Inorganic Chemistry; Chemical Oceanography; Electrochemistry Techniques. I advise students in both the Oceanography program, and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
