Scientific Research

Our research on the environmental behaviour and effects of pollutants includes a combination of laboratory based experimentation, field studies, computer modeling and policy analysis. Students typically choose a project in one of these areas depending on their interests, educational goals and future employment interests.

Our research group has laboratory and analytical facilities on the university campus. We also have access to ships and field research equipment. We further collaborate with several scientists at the Institute for Ocean Sciences. Through our collaborations, we can provide students with access to state-of-the-art equipment and facilities to do research.
