Research interests

I am currently developing and applying field work systems and laboratory techniques for better estimations of microplastics in aquatic systems. I have started my PhD 2017 in the project MicroCatch_balt where I focus on catchment wide dynamics of plastic distribution and incorporation into riverine foodwebs.
