Research interests

  • Effect-directed analysis (EDA) of complex environmental contamination with a focus on
    • high resolution mass spectrometry approaches for structure elucidation of trace organic contaminants and transformation products,
    • combination of chemical analysis and computer tools for structure elucidation and toxicant identification.
  • Sorption, reactions and transformation of organic contaminants in terrestrial and aquatic systems.
