Annika Jahnke 

Annika pursues combining environmental and human health assessment using identical tools. She holds a PhD in Environmental Chemistry (2007, Lüneburg University) and the Professorship „Exposome Analytics“ at RWTH Aachen University (since 2020). Following employments at Helmholtz Centre Geesthacht and Stockholm University, she joined UFZ Leipzig in 2014. Her special interests are (i) in novel passive equilibrium sampling using silicone-based „chemometers“ to investigate chemical activity in the multimedia environment driving the partitioning, fate and effects of environmental pollutants, (ii) in describing the exposome, i.e. the life-long exposure to chemicals, of environmental biota and humans and (iii) in environmental weathering and fate of plastics.
