Stuart L. Belli

Associate Professor of Chemistry

Stuart L. Belli is interested in the environment, both on a scientific and a humanistic level. His education in chemistry includes a BS in chemistry from the University of California at Riverside, a PhD in biophysical chemistry from the University of California at Santa Barbara, and a postdoctoral fellowship in analytical chemistry at the University of Delaware. His training focused on studying the environment at a molecular level. His primary research interest is in the behavior of heavy metals in both fresh water and sea water. Ongoing projects include investigating copper interactions with humic substances and developing methods for measuring copper in the aquatic environment.
