Research and expertise
I have 20 years of experience in water quality, advanced water monitoring of micro-pollutants and water treatment systems.
I have authored 45 papers in international peer-reviewed journals (h-index: 22, Citations: 2,700), I have five intellectual property documents, and I currently serve as an Editorial Board Member for the leading environmental and water quality journals, ES&T Water and Desalination.
In 2020, my research team published a novel analytical sample preparation and analysis method that is capable of identifying and semi-quantifying nano-size plastics in water sources, for the first time in the world (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0045653520303726). The following year, my team used the same method to identify micro and nanoparticle release from disposable face masks when littered in the environment (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0043135421002311)
