Eric McGivney

Guest researcher/Post doc
Room: X513


I am a post-doctoral fellow at Stockholm University’s Department of Analytical Chemistry and Environmental Sciences.

My research interests broadly include environmental microbiology, analytical chemistry, modeling, and emerging contaminants. Specific current research areas include: characterizing biological/microplastic (MP) interactions in sea water and sediments; surface characterization of MP; and environmental implications of antifouling paint in harbors.
