Research Interests: 

My research in the laboratory and in the field is focused on environmental pollutants, especially those found in the air and water that might affect people.  For example, I study toxic metals in airborne dust, the chemistry of rain and snow, and the environmental fate of sodium azide, the propellant used in certain automobile airbags.
