At the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemünde, my work is related to the purification of water, sediment and sludge samples from Treatment Plants (TP) and the further extraction of microplastic particles. Those samples are in the context of the Project PLASTRAT (http://www.plastrat.de/project/) that is dealing with a multitude of aspects, from sources to sinks, of microplastics generated from TP.

Along the last 15 years, I have been working with diverse aspects related to plastic and microplastic pollution mainly in marine environments, that include pristine and urban beaches, seawater surface and also the interaction between plastics and marine biota.

I am currently a member of the Anthropocene Working Group (http://quaternary.stratigraphy.org/working-groups/anthropocene/). The Anthopocene is currently being considered by the Working Group as a potential geological epoch in the Earths geologic history.

 

Research Interests:

  • Microplastics in environmental samples
  • Scientific writing and scientometrics
