Expert’s specialty is in the analytical chemistry of natural and anthropogenic compounds. She has used modern chromatography and spectroscopy instrumentation for analysis of organic and inorganic compounds in air, water and soil. She has published several articles on the use of HPLC, SFC, Capillary GC and AA for analysis of volatile and non-volatile compounds

Expert has developed and taught undergraduate and graduate environmental science courses. She had been a member of the Environmental Science Curriculum Committee at the University of North Texas.

Expert's Ph.D. dissertation focused on selected organic pesticide occurrence and transformation in water and wastewater. Studied pesticide included chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides, organophosphates and chlorinated herbicides. Throughout her career she had investigated the fate and transport of these pesticides in air, water and soil environments.



During her professional career Expert has taught several analytical chemistry courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels. She also implemented several analytical testing programs for research projects funded by EPA, API, CMA and others.

During her professional career Expert has taught several analytical chemistry courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Atomic absorption and emission spectroscopy were major chapters in her courses. Her courses included laboratory training of students on the proper use of these instruments for trace analysis. Expert analytical research laboratory was equipped with advanced AA and AE instruments.

During her professional career Expert has taught several analytical chemistry courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Capillary gas chromatography was a major chapter in her courses. Her courses included laboratory training of students on the proper use of these instruments for environmental analysis. Expert analytical research laboratory was equipped with capillary gas chromatographs equipped with EC, FID and FPD detectors. Expert had directed several PhD and MS student on research projects that included the use of capillary gas chromatography in analysis of environmental samples.




Expert has been involved in environmental chemistry research, education and consulting for almost 30 years. As a professor at University of North Texas she has conducted several research projects related to the fate and analysis of anthropogenic and natural compounds in the environment. The major theme of the research has been in: 1) the transport and fate of chemicals in the environment, and 2) the analytical chemistry of natural and anthropogenic compounds. She has trained students on the use of modern chromatography and spectroscopy instrumentation for analysis of organic and inorganic compounds in air, water and soil. She also trained students on the use of computer models and software programs such as MINTEQ, MEPAS, and ReOpt; GC, MS, and HPLC. Expert has been invited to present her research results at several national and international professional organizations. She has published more than 60 technical papers in refereed journals. She serves as a reviewer to several environmental and analytical chemistry journals such as Anal. Chem.; J. Agric. Food Chem. and J. Sci. Tot. Environ. She has served as a consultant to several industrial and government agencies including USEPA, Stanford Research Institute U.S. Geological Survey Allied Chemical Co., American Chrome and Chemicals Inc.,DBA Key and Associates, Southwest Medical School, Agricare Inc., Amity, Oregon and Texas A&M University, TX.

During her professional career Expert has taught several analytical chemistry courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels. The course included laboratory experiments including environmental sampling. She also implemented several research projects which included environmental sampling, analysis and interpretation. The research projects were funded by EPA, API, CMA and others

Aquatic and terrestrial humic material has been a major part of Expert's research activities for the last 30 years. She has several publications on these topics.
