My research interests are focused on liquid chromatography (LC), gas chromatography (GC), and inductively-coupled plasma – mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). I have a particular interest in developing solventless and solvent-minimized extraction procedures such as solid- and liquid-phase microextraction. All these techniques are mainly applied to forensic and environmental analyses. Some analytes of current interest include illicit drugs such as amphetamine and its metabolites, explosives and environmentally important pollutants. I am additionally interested in developing methods for determination of trace multi-elements in samples of forensic or environmental interest by using ICP-MS.
