My teaching is mainly practical based and covers several areas including analytical chemistry, environmental analytical chemistry, high accuracy analysis, advanced analytical instrumentation, dataquality and quality management systems at the undergraduate and postgraduate level for B.Sc. Chemistry, MChem, MSc Analytical Chemistry and B.Sc.Environmental Science.
My main research area is analytical chemistry with a particular focus on three areas; isotope amount ratio measurements by mass spectrometry; chemical metrology, ensuring that analytical results are valid and fit for purpose, and particulate interactions with metallic, organometallic, organosulphur, organophosphorus and organohalide chemical species in the aquatic environment.This requires the coupling of different separation techniques, such as high performance liquid chromatography, to various mass spectrometric detectors.
