Katherine Peter

Katherine’s research interests include water quality and the fate of organic contaminants in both natural and engineered systems. She is interested in approaches to better characterize, trace, and manage urban pollution, particularly from non-point sources. Her current research goals are to develop and improve methods that use non-target high resolution mass spectrometry to identify, differentiate, and track sources of organic contaminants in the environment.
