College Station, TX
I have 25 years of experience in atmospheric trace gas measurements. I received a PhD in Chemistry from Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany, in 1997, then spent five years at UC Berkeley as a researcher, before moving on to an academic faculty position. I came to Texas A&M as an Assistant Professor in 2005, and was granted tenure in 2012.
My current research interests surround the pollutant emissions from unconventional oil and gas exploration in shale areas, and their impacts on atmospheric chemistry and public health. My graduate student and I have published four related manuscripts on fracking-related air pollutants in Texas in the peer-reviewed literature, and I wrote a popular science article about this problem in The Conversation US in 2017.
