  • Profile

    I am an assistant professor in environmental chemistry at the Department of Ecosystem & Landscape Dynamics (ELD) at the Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED). Previously I worked as a Researcher at Stockholm University (Sweden) and as a Postdoc at the University of Vienna (Austria). I studied chemistry and obtained my PhD from ETH Zurich (Switzerland).

    My research interests centre around assessing the environmental fate of emerging chemical contaminants. I am particularly interested in understanding how the fundamental physical and chemical properties of a contaminant drive its transformation and transport behaviour in aquatic and terrestrial environments and how we can utilise this understanding to build models for predicting contaminant fate and concentrations. Most of my projects to date have focused on particulate contaminants, such as engineered nanoparticles as well as nano- and microplastics. I very much enjoy working in interdisciplinary projects and I am convinced that addressing potential risks and adequate regulations of emerging contaminants requires joint forces from different disciplines.
