Research & Project InterestsDr. WindsorÂ’s research interests focus on the analysis of trace levels of organic compounds in the environment. Examining the transport and fate of naturally occurring and anthropogenically produced organic chemicals in the marine and atmospheric environment has occupied much of Dr. WindsorÂ’s career. Before coming to Florida Tech in 1982, Dr. Windsor was a research staff member at Massachusetts Institute of Technology studying the fate of carcinogenic compounds in the marine environment. He has five years of experience in analyzing organic compounds in the atmosphere for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Since coming to Florida Tech, some projects that Dr. Windsor has directed include:
Â• Identification of toxic organic compounds in sediment, water and clams throughout the Indian River Lagoon (St. JohnÂ’s River Water Management District)
Â• Quantifying VOC compounds outgassing from composite materials used to replace structural steel in submarines and other closed environments (U.S. Navy)
Â• A comparison of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) from coastal estuaries in the Ivory Coast and Eastern Central Florida (National Science Foundation)
Â• Investigating the trace level of organic compounds in the Living Seas Aquarium and optimizing water treatment facilities (Walt Disney World)

Marine and Environmental Systems
Educational BackgroundPh.D. College of William and Mary
Professional ExperienceIn addition to a wide variety of environmental studies, Dr. Windsor is very active in marine and environ-mental education. He teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses in Environmental Chemistry, Introduction to Oceanography, Marine Pollution, Chemical Oceanography and Air Pollution, and has developed an educational outreach program called science education at sea (SEAS) that works with students from pre-kindergarten to post-graduate institutions and with the general public.
Dr. Windsor also collaborates with faculty in the science education department and serves as an important resource to science educators throughout Florida. He serves as chairman of the Technical Advisory Committee of the Indian River Lagoon Program.
