Research Topics       

  • Development of methods to characterize and quantify nanospecific, anthropogenic mass flows in the environment
  • Optimization and validation of different extraction methods for particular fractions in sediment samples and highway runoffs
  • Fractionation according to size and further characterization and quantification of the nano-particulate suspensions, using Asymmetrical Flow-Field-Flow-Fractionation (AF4) coupled to inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS)
  • Single particle ICP-MS for quantification of particulate fraction
