Urs Berger, PhD
My research focus is on the development and validation of chemical methods for trace analysis of emerging organic contaminants in environmental and human matrices. A special focus is on the use of various LC/MS techniques. Furthermore, I am interested in the application of the developed methods to gain an understanding of environmental and (eco)toxicological pollutant dynamics. Current target contaminants include highly polar industrial chemicals in the water cycle (PROMOTE project), per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), and chlorinated paraffins (CPs). Earlier research included brominated flame retardants, hydroxylated PCB metabolites and pharmaceuticals.
