Staff Research

My research focuses on method development and determination of polar compounds in complex matrices, e.g. environmental and textile samples. Some of the subprojects are:
· Determination of benzothiazoles in non-exhaust particulates from tire tread wear and air particulate samples.
· Determination of benzothiazoles and benzotriazoles in clothing textiles.
· Determination of hydroxy-PAHs in wood smoke and air particulate samples.
