About

Dr Ma's current research focuses on evaluation of indoor dust as a pathway of human exposure to persistent organic compounds.

Qualifications

PhD, Indiana University, 2013

Biography

Dr Ma obtained his PhD from Indiana University in 2013. His PhD research was supervised by Distinguished Prof. Ronald Hites and dealt with flame retardants in the atmosphere over the Great Lakes region. He subsequently joined Prof. Stuart Harrad’s group at University of Birmingham for a post-doc position researching on persistent organic compounds indoor dust.
