I have a compelling interest in measuring toxic persistent chemicals in our environment as well as developing predictive models to determine a process level understanding of their fate and behaviour. I am also interested in human exposure to toxic persistent chemicals.

Research Interests

The overall goal of my PhD thesis is to improve our understanding of the factors that influence indoor concentrations of SVOCs so that the knowledge would assist with energy retrofits, and building designs will take into account the need to reduce human exposure to SVOCs indoors.
