Graham Mills has worked in the area of chromatography and spectroscopy for 30 years. Most of this time, he has been involved in using these techniques for the analysis of biomedical/clinical and environmental samples. He gained his Ph.D. degree in 1983 from the University of Southampton, UK, and this concerned the analysis of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons in vehicle exhaust emissions. Mills continued working in Southampton until 1990 undertaking chemical analyses of body fluids. In 1990, He moved to the University of Portsmouth, UK as a Senior Lecturer in applied chemistry and taught analytical chemistry on a number of programs. He was promoted to be a Principal Lecturer, then a Reader in analytical chemistry, and in 2008 was given a personal Chair in environmental chemistry within the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences. His current research interests concern the analysis of pollutants (nonpolar and polar organics and metals) in water and development of novel monitoring methods, particularly the use of passive sampling techniques.
