My research investigates the environmental behaviour of organic chemical contaminants, including pesticides, industrial chemicals and pharmaceuticals. I am particularly interested in how compounds undergo long-range transport to remote environments like the Arctic and their subsequent accumulation in snow and ice. Chemical fate and behaviour under climate change, notably in a warmer Arctic, is an important area of my research. My work also extends to understanding chemical behaviour in aquatic and agricultural systems, notably chemical fate in plastic-protected environments.
