Dr. Guan has wide ranging research interests in forensic, environmental, and analytical chemistry, especially
in analytical method development and validation using chromatography and mass spectrometry. Her recent
research has focused on sample preparation and analysis of drugs of abuse, pharmaceuticals, pesticides,
gunshot residue, explosives, food adulterants, and toxins.
