Christopher R. Iceman

Research Description

Dr. Iceman's research is broadly focused on solvated ion chemistry. He finds the fundamentals of solvation to be fascinating and is interested in using solvation as an analytical tool to discover more about our chemical world.  As an analytical method mass spectrometry is a key component to his study of solvated constituents in aqueous systems, gas phase particulates and condensed matter substrates as well as the interfaces found between them.  The merit of this work has implications that span ecosystem health to toxin identification and remediation.  Computational methods using the advantages of high performance computing compliment this work providing a key feedback between theory and experiment.

Professor Iceman is also passionately involved in the research of teaching pedagogy and how to make the classroom an exciting and fruitful learning environment.  He very much enjoys helping students discover their own lifetime of science adventure while promoting campus research and science within the community.
