Current Research

Our goal is to build upon analytical methods designed to characterize and identify complex mixtures. These methods coupled with 2 D methods will be utilize to generate comprehensive knowledge for the separation of chemical components of biomass. The development of algorithms from 2D analysis will maximize the separation for identifying processes for various biomass species.

  • Pulping and biorefinery processes
  • Identify and characterize anti-microbial components generated during fungal attack
  • Wood's Chemical Composition (degraded lignin and extractive).


Research Interest

  • Capillary Electrophoresis coupled with Mass Spectrometry
  • Comprehensive Multi-Dimensional Gas Chromatography
  • Identification and characterization of chemical components of various biomass species (carbohydrates, lignin, resin and fatty acids)
  • Instruments used for characterization and identification: GCXGC TOF, CE-ESI-MS, TOC, UV-Vis, NMR, HPLC, FTIR, GC/MS, ICP-OES, CI/EI


Education

  • Clark Atlanta University, Atlanta, Georgia, Ph.D. Analytical Chemistry , 2009
  • Tuskegee University, Tuskegee, Alabama, M.S. Chemistry , 2001
  • Tuskegee University, Tuskegee, Alabama, B.S. Chemistry , 1997

Professional Organizations

  • American Chemical Society (ACS), Member
  • National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (NOBCChE), Member
  • Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry (TAPPI), Member

Spectroscopy Research Challenges a Deadly Tree Fungus

Loblolly pine ranges from Georgia and the Carolinas to Texas but a destructive fungus is threatening this common southern softwood. Fusiform rust, Cronartium quercuum f.sp. fusiforme, is one the most destructive forest diseases in the South. With its complex life cycle, this fungus infects both lob...
