Eva joined the UFZ in November 2017 as a PhD student in the ERC project CHEMO-RISK. Within the project she studies the distribution of pollutants within marine mammals. The methods that she applies focus on passive sampling with “chemometers” and bioanalytical screening of the chemometer extracts. One of her aims is to determine mixture effects and the characterization of bioanalytical patterns covering toxicokinetic and toxicodynamic endpoints. Chemical trace analysis of the extracts will complement the work.
Eva is a biochemist, carried out her Bachelor’s and Master’s studies at Leipzig University and graduated successfully in October 2017. Her Master’s thesis “Combination of passive sampling methods and bioanalytical characterization of mixture effects of environmental pollutants in mammals” was accomplished in cooperation with the UFZ Department Cell Toxicology.
