Biography:

Research:
Characterization and evolving properties of solid PM2.5 aerosol particulates with special attention given to the detection of spores and bacteria; experimental studies of bacteria-clay interactions emphasizing conditions favorable to the production of bio-mineral phases. Experiments use light scattering and auto-fluorescence to characterize assemblages.  Assays of aerosols include SEM/EDS, GC/MS. FTIR, AA, and related instruments.

Dynamic models for the intrusion of large igneous structures, particularly the Palisades diabase of New York and New Jersey.

Gothermometry and geobarometry of granultes.
