I teach courses on Community Air Quality, Environmental Chemistry, Forensic Chemistry, Chemical Equilibrium and Instrumental Analysis. My research interests include the impact of school traffic on pollutant gases and particles in the Town of Davidson, developing spectroscopic methods to study the ageing of primary and secondary organic aerosols and in collaboration with Prof. Karen Bernd, Biology, epithelial cell response to ozone exposure.
My background is in environmental monitoring of gas phase species and developing spectroscopic methods to study aerosol reactions in the laboratory. My work has been supported by the American Chemical Society, Petroleum Research Fund, Research Corporation, the Association of Colleges of the South, and the Merck Foundation.
I'm also chair of the Environmental Studies Department.
