Curriculum Vitae

I am an environmental scientist with broad interests in GeoHealth. I study the sources, transport, fate, and bioavailability of contaminants and nutrients in ecosystems and their impacts on public health, with an emphasis on linking global environmental changes to ecological and human health

Student Opportunities: I am recruiting M.Sc and Ph.D. graduate students to join my research group at UD. Students or graduates in geosciences, chemistry, biology, environmental sciences, or public health and are interested in studying bioavailability, bioaccumulation, and toxicity of environmental contaminants (e.g., lead, mercury, PFAS) are encouraged to apply.

Lab Technician Opportunity: I am recruiting a lab technician to join my lab. Prior work experience in environmental chemistry labs is highly preferred. 

Please contact me ( if interested in the above opportunities.
