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 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.

Complete List of my Publications

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 central district of Krakow.

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.
