I started as a PhD student at the department in June 2011 under the supervision of Roger Westerholm. Previously I completed my MSc in analytical chemistry at the department. My thesis involved utilizing passive samplers for quantitative analysis of pesticides in water. As of September 2012 I have been one of the webmasters for the department’s homepage together with Jonas Rutberg.
My research is on traffic related pollution – which is focused on, but not limited to, particulate associated Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) originating from vehicular emissions. The subject area includes non-exhaust particulates from tire tread wear and tail pipe emissions. My work also includes quantitative analysis of PAHs in urban air.
