Jake C. Ulrich

Doctoral Candidate - Civil and Environmental Engineering

Jake joined the lab as a graduate student in 2017. His work primarily focuses on applying high-performance mass spectrometry tools to better understand environmental contamination. He works on developing methods to better detect and quantify glyphosate, as well as, understanding the environmental fate of this pesticide. He also does work in using high-resolution mass spectrometry to better understand the drinking water quality health of waters in the "developing world" with projects based in Haiti and Sri Lanka.
