Research Interests: Currently, my research interests involve how the surface of different metals function as catalysts for the removal of the chlorine atom from organic compounds. I am currently looking at metals that have been deposited upon carbon surfaces by electrolysis. The conditions used in the electrolysis reaction can produce metal particles with different mesostructures which in turn can demonstrate different catalytic properties. These catalytic materials could one day lead to the production of efficient devices for the treatment of water contaminated with compounds like PCB's and the chloromethanes.

Education: Ph.D. Organic Chemistry, Marquette University
