Research Focus: 

My research deals with the equilibrium properties of liquids and liquid mixtures and solutions. These include molten salts, RTILs, organic solvents and solutions, water and aqueous solutions, as well as supercritical fluids. The solutes are both electrolytes and non-electrolytes. The topics dealt with include speciation, liquid and solution structure, and thermodynamic properties as well as some transport properties, such as viscosities.
