Matthew Hurst, Professor

Analytical Chemistry, Aquatic Biogeochemistry of Trace Metals, Water Quality

Academic Background
Summary of Research

My research interests lie in two areas: (1) the development of analytical methods for the determination of trace metals in aquatic systems, and (2) the study of trace metal and nutrient cycling in natural systems with a particular interest in determining the toxicity and/or bioavailability of elemental species. Currently, the study sites used in my undergraduate research program include Humboldt Bay, Arcata Marsh and California coastal waters.
