WELCOME TO DR. VOZKA RESEARCH LAB!

C⏣mplex Chemical C⏣mp⏣siti⏣n Analysis Lab (C³AL)

We are a research group in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at California State University, Los Angeles. Our research focuses on the characterization of complex chemical mixtures via state-of-the-art techniques, such as two-dimensional gas chromatography and high-resolution mass spectrometry. Our main goal is to fundamentally understand and describe how the chemical composition influences the properties of complex chemical mixtures on a molecular level. Our additional focus is on microplastic analysis.

LOOKING OUT FOR THE COAST

Just 10 days after the spill, the beach reopened to the public. For California State University, Los Angeles Assistant Professor of Chemistry Petr Vozka, Ph.D., that decision raised a question: Was it safe for beachgoers?
