Expertise

Analytical Chemistry:      

  -Development of analytical techniques for trace metal analysis and organometal analysis (organomercury, organotin and As speciation analysis) and radionuclides in various environmental samples

 -Development of gel diffusion techniques for in situ trace metal speciation: DGT (diffusive gradients in thin films) and DET(diffusive equilibrium in thin films) for different metals and radio-isotopes

 -participation in intercomparison exercises for quality assurance and the preparation of certified reference materials (AQUACHECK, QUASIMEME, BCR, IAEA)

Environmental Chemistry:           

-Study of the biogeochemical cycle, mobility and toxicity of trace metals and organometal compounds in freshwater, estuarine and marine environments and mining areas

-Study of the bioaccumulation of trace metals in aquatic organism

-Study of the behaviour of trace metals and radio-isotopes in sediments, water ans soils

-Human biomonitoring of pollutants
