Dan is interested in environmental analyses and monitoring of air and water. Projects with Puget Sound students have included remote sensing measurements of in-use emissions from vehicles such as cars, trucks, school buses, transit buses, trains, and  boats (small personal vessels, commercial vessels and ocean-going vessels) both in the U.S. and internationally. Water analyses include quantifying trace levels of pharmaceuticals and illicit drugs in wastewater.  Dan teaches Chemical Analysis and Equilibrium (Chem 230), and Instrumental Analysis (Chem 330).

Dan completed his undergraduate degree at Colorado College and then taught at a Denver area high school before returning to do graduate work at the University of Denver under the direction of Donald Stedman. Dan joined the Chemistry Department at Puget Sound in 2006.
