General Information:

Research in Aquatic Chemistry:

Our laboratory investigates two complementary topics. The first is the origin, properties and complexation chemistry of aquatic humic substances in freshwater and brackish water environments. The second is the emission, distribution, and ecochemistry of organic pollutants in the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay watersheds. Of current interest is the fate of pharmaceutical chemicals entering rivers and streams through wastewater discharge and their impacts in aquatic ecosystems.
