I received an M. Chem degree in Chemistry from the University of Sussex, U.K. in 2000 and a Ph.D. in Chemical Oceanography from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) Joint program in 2006. After teaching Oceanography at Boston University for a year, I was awarded a Microbial Science Initiative postdoctoral fellowship in 2007 from Harvard University. I joined the faculty of the Chemistry department at Haverford College in July, 2009 and also contribute to the Tri-College Environmental Studies program. I enjoy working with students from all disciplines to enhance our understanding of the environment. I am particularly interested in using chemical and molecular biological approaches to examine the impact of human-derived chemicals on the World's Oceans.
