During my PhD, I am working on the analysis of organophosphorus compounds in the environment. I have set up an electrodialysis system for the desalination of seawater, in order to enable different analyses of phosphrous-containing substances, which are impossible in the presence of the salt matrix.
Specifically, I am also interested in the analysis of the herbicide glyphosate in the environment.


During my past studies, I have worked on many different subjects, e.g. method development on the field of mass spectrometry, the analysis of microplastics with FTICR and imaging techniques or the interaction between marine snow and spill oil in the context of the Deepwater Horizon Blowout.
