Research Interest:
The measurement of man-made organic pollutants in marine organisms using techniques of chromatography and mass spectrometry. Our research focuses on the measurement of man-made organic pollutants in marine organisms using techniques of chromatography and mass spectrometry. The measurements have been directed towards understanding metabolic fate of organochlorines in marine food webs, describing stock structure in seals and walrus, quantifying poorly studied types of organochlorines and providing quality control for national and international measurements on marine matrices.
