Research and Teaching Interest

Dr. Merrifeld's research interests are based around the effect of environmental and toxicological media on the state of nanoparticles (particularly oxidation states, surface interactions and dissolution rates) and how this affects the transport, uptake and toxicity of nanoparticles.
