Dr Christine Davidson

Senior Lecturer

Pure and Applied Chemistry

Personal statement

Christine Davidson's research is in the area of environmental analytical chemistry, especially the development of new analytical methods to assess risk to human health and the environment from priority pollutants either directly or through the food chain. Recent studies have focused on chemical speciation analysis of potentially toxic elements (e.g. As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, Mn, Ni, Pb, Sn, Zn); the study of urban soils and inhalable airborne particles, contaminated land, sediments and waters; and on development of simple colorimetric methods for carrying out analysis in the field. She also works on persistent organic pollutants such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
