Curriulum Vitae

Research

Professor Halstead is the author or co-author of more than two dozen scientific and pedagogical articles in journals such as Atmospheric Environment, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Journal of Chemical Education, Journal of the Electrochemical Society, Journal of Geoscience Education and Journal of Physical Chemistry. In addition, she is the author of two book chapters on the kinetics of reactions at a solid-gas interface and the co-author of a chapter on avian foraging behavior. Professor Halstead and her Skidmore College undergraduate collaborators are currently working on the development and refinement of analytical techniques for the determination of trace levels of pollutants in natural waters. The water chemistry of lakes and streams in Saratoga County and the Adirondack Park is also of interest to Professor Halstead and her students.
