I currently investigate the processes influencing the mobility and the transformations of mercury (Hg) (i.e., methylation and demethylation), lead (Pb), and cadmium (Cd) along with land-sea transects. My research interests focus on understanding biogeochemical processes controlling the fate and transformations of Hg and methylmercury (MeHg) in natural systems, and heavy metal speciation. I am interested in water quality studies (near-coastal environments, tropical and subtropical wetlands and, aquatic systems impacted by small-scale gold mining and other mining).
I am quite keen to participate in projects that help to strengthen the sustainability transformation of our society, and that find better adaptation strategies to merge resource efficiency and cutting-edge technology changes. I am passionate about promoting scientific communication to guide our society onto a path towards sustainability.
