As an environmental chemist, I combine my expertise in analytical chemistry and environmental engineering. My research focuses on emerging environmental contaminants such as per- and polyfluorinated compounds (PFAS), with a particular emphasis on the development of new technologies for their detection and, potentially, for their remediation. My overall goal is to identify the presence of compounds of concern in the environment and help reduce human exposure.
