Research Topic(s) Summary:
Environmental organic; Organic contaminants in aquatic environments.
Description of Research:
My research program at CCNY is addressing questions concerning aquatic environmental organic chemistry, with a focus on the mechanisms through which organic contaminants undergo abiotic transformations in natural aquatic environment (freshwater, groundwater, seawater). A special interest lies in the role of reduced sulfur species and their reaction with organic contaminants. The formation of these reduced sulfur species shall be studied as well.
