Research Interest

The distributions of trace elements in seawater are investigated to better understand the complex biogeochemical cycles operating within the oceans. Measurements of picomolar metal levels in seawater, a complex matrix of 0.5M NaCl and other salts, sampled from ships constructed primarily from metals, is no easy task. This requires advanced separation techniques, the most sensitive elemental-detection methods available, and careful sample handling.
