Before joining Michigan Tech, Dr. Jiehong Guo was a senior researcher at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. She has previously worked in Indiana University Bloomington as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. Her research focuses on two parts. One is to identify biomarkers of DNA damage caused by carcinogens using mass spectrometric approaches. Another part is to develop and apply analytical methods to measure persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) pollutants in various environmental matrices, evaluate the magnitude of environmental pollution, and examine the fate and transport of PBT chemicals in the environment. Dr. Guo has published over 35 peer reviewed papers in Environmental Science and Technology, Chemical Research in Toxicology, Journal of Hazardous Materials, etc.
