PhD student Tayyebeh Panahi recently had an article published in the Journal of Chromatography A, one of the top journals that publishes work in analytical chemistry.
Panahi works in Dr. Roger Harrison’s lab developing new stationary phases for ion chromatography columns. She then applies these columns to the separation and detection of analytes in biofluids and environmental waters. Her article (on which she collaborated with Dr. Harrison, Dr. John Lamb, and Douglas Weaver) focuses ...
