Research Interests:

Present research interests are in the areas of Environmental Pollution and Industrial Chemistry. The Environmental work is inter-disciplinary and focuses on the transportation of pollutants, primarily N and P nutrients, to the coastal zone while the Industrial work focuses the production of alumina from bauxite by the Bayer Process. These works are linked through the common aspects of precipitation/sedimentation/adsorption, mineralogy and quality assurance in analytical chemistry. Extensive use is made of the Centre for Marine Science's resources at Discovery Bay (DBML) and Port Royal and the facilities available at International Centre for Environmental and Nuclear Science (ICENS) on the Mona Campus. Most of the industrial research is done in collaboration with and funding from the bauxite processing sector. Graduate students work both on campus and at the processing plants. A focus of the environmental work is to find ways to cost-effectively monitor the quality of the nation's river and coastal waters. On campus work is done in the Kenneth E. Magnus Applied Chemistry Teaching and Research Laboratory which has been organized with a focus on Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC) aspects of Laboratory Management. .
