Kevin Huncik (Fed)

Kevin's research is to evaluate anthropogenic contaminants in environmental matrices such as sediment and marine tissues. His expertise primarily includes measurement of POPs such as PCBs, PAHs, organochlorine pesticides, and flame retardants using gas chromatograph mass spectrometry and gas chromatograph triple mass spectrometry.

Kevin currently serves as Safety Representative for NIST Hollings Marine Laboratory, Charleston, SC and as an instrument engineer for quick onsite repair of instrumentation, thus decreasing the amount of down time for end users.
