Research in my lab is in the area of environmental chemistry, specifically chemical and microbiological processes that affect organic pollutants. Current projects include:
Effects of ozonation on biological activity of antibiotics
Current researchers: Wendy Consoer (Class of 2013) and Dan Kellen (Class of 2015)
Estrogenic activity of pharmaceutical photolysis products
Current researcher: Sam Jensen (Class of 2013)
Antibiotics and and antibiotic resistance in natural waters
Current researchers: Maia Moffatt (Class of 2014) and Liz Beck (Class of 2015)
