Dr. Dodder works in the San Diego State University School of Public Health Environmental Health Laboratory. An analytical chemist specializing in applications related to environmental and public health, his expertise includes:
1) Analytical method development for the quantification of contaminants, metabolites, and protein biomarkers by chromatography/mass spectrometry
2) Non-targeted mass spectrometry for the identification of unexpected environmental contaminants
3) Environmental survey design to assess the occurrence and fate of contaminants in abiotic and biotic matrices
4) Implementation of quality assurance/quality control procedures for chemical analyses
5) Scientific software development, including tools for mass spectral interpretation and mass spectral libraries, automated quality control validation, and data analysis and visualization.
Dr. Dodder is a Co-Investigator of a couple of MERG projects. In these projects, he leads method development for qualitative and quantitative chemical analyses, with responsibility for QA/QC, laboratory maintenance, and training and supervision of laboratory technicians and student lab assistants.
