Research Interest

Environmental science, Analytical chemistry, Atomic Absorption Spectrometry

1. How many years have you been practicing and/or performing research?
Apart from some undergraduate research projects, my first research experiences were as part of my PhD program at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst under the direction of Dr. Julian Tyson. I have been active in research at some level since 1994. Working at a primarily undergraduate institution I see my main role as that of teaching and believe strongly in undergraduate research as a teaching method.

2. What is the research topic you are working on now?
Over the past couple of years we have been interested in the environmental effects of Hurricane Sandy on the New York metropolitan area. Additionally I’m interested in low-cost analytical methods, and chemical education.

3. What makes an article top quality?
I tell my students that if they don’t understand a paper it is probably because it is poorly written. Papers should be as clear and simple as possible. Work has to be original and of interest to a large audience.

4. What are the qualities you look for in an article?
Clarity, brevity, clear and informative data interpretation, originality, good experimental design, conclusions based on sound data.

5. Do you have any research funding (NIH or other national funding) now?
No I do not.

6. When did you become an editor of OMICS Journal?
November 2013

7. What is your greatest career accomplishment?
My accomplishments are best demonstrated by the accomplishment of the students I have taught. Some are accomplished researchers, college professors, industry employees, science teachers, and physicians.

8. How does the research published percolate through to practitioners?
Successful research ideas can be incorporated into future research, as well as standard methods and protocols used by practicioners.

9. What is the purpose of serving as an editor?
I hope to ensure quality and provide some input in the direction of the journal.

10. Do you have any patents?

11. Have you contributed any editorials or papers (any types) to OMICS Journals in the past two years?
I have a paper and editorial currently in press for JREAC.

12. Do you plan to contribute any editorials or papers to OMICS Journals in the near future?
I would certainly consider future submissions.

13. Do you have any trouble with OMICS Journals in the past?
No, I've had no experience with them.

14. Would you recommend OMICS Group to your friends or colleagues?

15. How do you differentiate Journal of Environmental Analytical Chemistry with other journals in the field?
While there are environmental chemistry journals that include analytical methods and analytical chemistry journals that cover some environmental content, there are none specifically targeted at the analytical methods associated with environmental measurements. The Open Access format also provides for greater exposure of research results.
