My Career

Until his death on July 30, 2001, I worked with Dr. Glen R. Cass at the California Institute of Technology. As a senior scientist, I specialize in the study of effects of atmospheric pollution on cultural properties. My work includes studies of airborne pollutants in national parks, museums and archaeological sites around the world.

Work included the Beijing Blue Skies air monitoring project that helped bring the 2008 Olympics to Beijing. I then moved south to sample in the Pearl River Delta region in southern China and Hong Kong.

Other projects included air pollutant monitoring at the Asinou Church in Cyprus, and the Global Ozone Passive Monitoring Project.

Here are some photos of rooftop sampling at Caltech.

Past research projects include a study at the Wieliczka Salt Mine, located in southern Poland as well as an investigation of the soiling inside the Wawel Castle and several museums located in the historic central district of Krakow.

You can also find out about my work in the Buddhist cave temples in Yungang, China and other projects in my publication's list.

I'm also including some links to conservation and museum related sites.
