I have been working on my PhD in chemistry with the Anbar lab since 2014. My research interests lay in the environmental analysis of trace metals and their isotope ratios. I am currently studying aerosol dissolution in surface ocean waters. Aerosols play an important role in ocean chemistry, as they can deliver nutrients and toxins to marine life. By analyzing trace metals in aerosol particles, we may elucidate natural and anthropogenic processes occurring in aquatic systems. The isotope ratios of these trace metals may provide even more information about our oceans.
