My research interest is on understanding how complex chemical mixtures cause adverse effects to our environment using chemical analysis alongside effect-based tools. While a multitude of chemicals is known to exist in the environment, the full extent of their occurrence and their impacts on the Earth's system remain largely unknown. Consequently, the overarching goal of my work is to advance the assessment of complex chemical mixtures in the environment, aligning with the EU’s vision for a toxic-free environment. My specific research interests include:
- Using chemical analytical approaches, such as liquid chromatography high-resolution mass spectrometry (LC-HRMS), to elucidate chemical pollution in the environment.
- Exploring the potential of combining chemical analysis with effect-based analysis.
- Applying statistical methods to wide-scope chemical and effect-based monitoring data for offering recommendations for future monitoring, assessment and regulation of chemicals.
