I am a Research Associate in Dr. Peters laboratory, in the Department of Occupational and Environmental Health at the UI. I have received my PhD degree in Physical Chemistry from the University of Pittsburgh. I have studied chemical and optical properties of nanomaterials using advanced microscopy and spectroscopy techniques. Currently, I work on testing nanoparticle respiratory dose (NRD) sampler in different laboratory and occupational settings. I enjoy working in the lab, creating new things and keeping up-to-date with the constantly evolving scientific developments.
