The Grannas research group at Villanova University studies a wide range of topics under the umbrella of "analytical environmental chemistry", including snow and ice photochemistry, the impacts of photochemistry on pollutant cycling, Arctic atmospheric chemistry, and development of advanced analytical techniques to study organic material in ice cores.
Our work is motivated by an intrinsic desire to help others, whether through research projects tied to human and ecosystem health or by educating the next generation of problem solvers. The research group is comprised of both undergraduate and master's level students. Click below to learn more about group members, both present and past.
Advancing fundamental knowledge of environmental and atmospheric chemistry is an important aspect of the Grannas Research Group. Research results are disseminated through presentations at scientific meetings as well as publication in the peer-reviewed scientific literature. Click below to learn more.
