I am interested in natural and anthropologically derived organic compounds in the environment at the land-ocean continuum. Targeted and non-Targeted Analysis of Emerging Contaminants: Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) represent a class of man-made compounds often referred to as “forever chemicals” due to the environmental persistence. Due to this persistence these compounds are ubiquitous in the environment and are globally distributed. Current research is focused on the occurrence, transport and fate of PFAS in a variety of environmental compartments such as the atmosphere and marine sediments.
