George P. Cobb is Chair of the Environmental Science Department at Baylor university at present. He has completed his Ph.D. in Chemistry, University of South Florida, Tampa, FL & B.S. in Chemistry, College of Charleston, Charleston, SC. For the past two decades Prof. Cobb's research group has developed forensic analytical techniques to assess contaminant presence and movement. Many of these techniques have been deployed to evaluate contaminant presence, transport, and transformation in organisms and environmental systems. Major research thrusts have involved coupling ultra-trace analytical methods with minimally invasive non-lethal monitoring techniques. This approach allows repeated measures during long term monitoring of organism exposure, which is a critical component of comprehensive risk assessments.Professor Cobb has published over 100 peer reviewed papers and maintains strong national and international collaborations through leadership positions in The Society or Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry as well as the American Chemical Society.
