My research includes development of analytical methods as well as characterization and identification of organohalogen compounds, primarily in biotic samples. The substances I focus on range from phenolic to highly lipophilic compounds both of anthropogenic and natural origin. I am also involved in projects characterizing endocrine disruptors in sewage and pulp mill effluents, and I conduct environmental monitoring of organochlorines i.e. PCB, DDT as well as brominated flame retardants in biota.
