Analysis of organic micro-pollutants in the environment by multi-dimensional UHPLC and high resolution/accurate mass spectrometry

July 13, 2015

The application of high resolution, accurate mass (HRAM) mass spectrometry coupled with multidimensional chromatographic separations, bioaffinity isolation techniques, and online sample preparation methods to detect, identify, and quantify emerging contaminants (including endocrine disruptors, pharmaceuticals, and surfactants) in wastewater and drinking water. The overarching goal of Lee’s research is to gain an increased understanding of how emerging contaminants are transported, transformed and induce deleterious effects within aquatic ecosystems.
