Research Interest 1
Metal speciation in the marine or freshwater environment. Availability of metal species to microorganisms.
Development of sensors for the detection of metals in natural waters.
Research necessity: development of methods to determine the chemical speciation of metals in seawater.
Current research aimed at identification of what ligands are responsible for complexation of iron in the marine system. Voltammetric is used to detect iron-humic species (whether terrestrial or from marine origin) directly in seawater without the need for prior separation. Similarly copper binding thiols have been detected in seawater and are found to be wide spread.
