Biography

I believe in French chemist/microbiologist Louis Pasteur’s principle of use-inspired basic research – a goal that is evidenced in the interweaving of research, teaching, and service that make up the fabric of my academic identity. Since the first day of joining UA, I have maintained an active program of research while advising/mentoring undergraduate and graduate students, teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, and providing service at various levels. My research and teaching interests lie in the field of Environmental Health. Active research programs include the study of multidisciplinary environmental chemistry related to water and air quality and their impact on human health, acid rain, and transport of atmospheric pollutants including inorganic and organic species

Research Interest

• Effects of particulate matter on daily morbidity and mortality due to cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases in urban centers
• Chemical characteristics of fine particles responsible for the observed health effects
• Exposure and health impacts related to indoor and outdoor air pollution including studies of indoor allergens, diesel vehicle emissions, volatile organic compounds, PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons), and other air toxins
• Water and Human Health issues, such as drinking-water quality and human health risks associated with water contaminants
• Bioaerosols
