Research Interest

My research interest is the method development for microplastic and tire wear analysis using pyrolysis-gas chromatography-mass spectronomy (Py-GC/MS) and the application of these methods in different environmental compartments.  The marine environment and especially the sea surface microlayer with its possible interactions with the overlying atmosphere are of special interest.
