About Me

I am an environmental analytical chemist with interests in emerging contaminants and analytical method development. Research in my group covers four main themes: 1) Occurrence and behaviour of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) in humans and the environment; 2) Metabolomics as an emerging tool for chemical hazard assessment; 3) Fate and behaviour of micropollutants in the hyporheic zone; and 4) Suspect/non-target screening using UHPLC-orbitrap-MS.
