My research is mainly focus on environmental chemistry. In my research, various environmental samples were collected and analyzed by utilizing many analytical instruments such as ICP-MS, ICP-AES, AAS and nuclear analytical techniques (NAA and PGA) in order to determine trace/toxic elements in these samples. The aims are to find out the concentrations of these elements and to assess the level of environmental pollution. Examples of my research include air particulate analysis, marine pollution studies, toxic elements in fish and biomonitoring. My other research interest is cosmochemistry where the chemical compositions of meteorites would tell us about the evolution of our solar system in the past. Apart from that, I am interested in QA/QC of analytical methods which is an important part of analytical work.
