Fields of Study

Areas of Interest

Research in our group relies on the interface between chemistry and biology to answer fundamental environmental questions. We focus on the development of novel techniques to address the following bottlenecks of current environmental science research: i) the limited capacity of traditional targeted chemical analysis strategies to monitor the growing number of known and unknown environmental chemicals introduced into commerce ; ii) limited information is available regarding toxic mechanisms (i.e., protein targets) for the vast majority of environmental chemicals. We are currently focusing on three research directions:

  • Untargeted identification of novel environmental chemicals
  • Investigation on sources and behaviors of environmental chemicals
  • Unbiased identification of protein targets by chemical proteomics
