    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Our research falls into an array of interdisciplinary areas: chemical toxicology, organic chemistry, photochemistry, environmental chemistry, and biochemistry. Our main interest is to study the photochemical fate, DNA interaction and damage, and photo-induced toxicity of environmental chemicals, cosmetics and skin care products, nanomaterials, and industrial waste chemicals. Special focus is on the environmentally carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and polychlorobyphenyls (PCBs), cosmetic ingredient chemicals, and pharmaceuticals.

    · Phototoxicity and photochemical reaction of hair-dye ingredient chemicals, cosmetic chemical, and pharmaceuticals.
    · Toxicity study of nano-gold and nano-silver in skin cells and bacteria
    · Photochemistry and photodegradation of PAHs, nitroaromatics, PCBs
    · Phototoxicity of PAHs, PCBs, electronic waste chemicals
    Development of nanopartcle based detection techniques for DNA damages and viruses.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
