We are particularly interested in understanding diverse sources, transport and transformation pathways of legacy and emerging contaminants in agricultural, surface water and atmospheric systems using a combination of analytical, experimental and computational tools. Our research informs regulatory bodies and supports the transition towards increased circularity and the development of safe and sustainable-by design chemicals and products in line with the EU's Green Deal ambitions.
