Liza-Marie joined the Department of Effect-Directed Analysis in April 2014. Here she prepared her Master’s thesis on “Screening for pharmaceuticals in sediments of major European estuaries”. Since February 2015 she works on identifying drivers of chemical stress in small rivers during her PhD project. Here she wants to unravel spatial and temporal patterns in the pollution of freshwaters with organic micropollutants.
Liza-Marie studied Forensic and Analytical Sciences at the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Science and the Robert Gordon University (Aberdeen, UK). She completed her studies with a Master in Environmental Sciences at the University of Copenhagen and the University of Hohenheim. During her studies and through an internship at the Leibniz-Institute for Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries, she deepened her knowledge in environmental chemistry and gained many experiences in sample preparation and field work.
