Miller-Schulze Laboratory

Professor Miller-Schulze is an Analytical and Environmental Chemist focused on the development and/or adaption of analytical methodology to quantify chemical tracers in environmental or biological matrices. These tracer chemicals are typically small organic molecule tracers that are indicative of a specific activity (for example, caffeine in a river as a tracer of human wastewater).  Environmental and biological concentrations of these tracers are usually very low (parts-per-trillion), so quantification involves sensitive techniques such as mass spectrometry preceded by gas or liquid chromatography.
