Regina Easley (Fed)

Dr. Easley's current research focuses on the traceability of pH measurements in seawater by combining electrochemistry, spectrophotometry, and quantitative nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (qNMR). As an analytical chemist, Regina has extensive experience in physical organic chemistry and environmental chemistry. While an oceanographer, she participated in several research cruises and freshwater field deployments to examine nutrient concentrations and the inorganic carbon dioxide system using novel in situ sensors.
