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
specialized 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.
I designed, deployed, managed and analyzed samples from the
Beijing Blue Skies
air monitoring project that helped bring the 2008 Olympics
to Beijing. We then moved the equipment south to
carry out a fine particle air pollution source apportionment study to help manage air quality
in the Pearl River Delta
in southern China and Hong Kong.
Other work of mine involved air pollutant monitoring at the
Asinou Church in Cyprus, and the
Global Ozone Passive Monitoring Project.
My research projects in Poland included a study at the
Wieliczka Salt Mine as well
as an investigation of the soiling inside the Wawel Castle
and several museums located in the historic
I spent the months of April through June, 1991 working and travelling in China
as part of an extensive multi-year air pollution monitoring project at the
Buddhist cave temples in Yungang, China.
I also spent plenty of time (nearly 20 years) analyzing samples in the lab and
conducting field work in Southern California.
Here are a few photos of rooftop sampling at Caltech.
And, here are some photos from the
Air Pollution Study at the New Getty Museum.
More information about some of my other research projects can be found
in my publication's list.
I'm also including some links to
conservation and museum related sites.
