Research field

Research is focussed on the analysis of legacy and emerging brominated flame retardants in indoor (air and dust) and outdoor environments (air, soil). Research also includes studies of human exposure from air inhalation, dust ingestion, and dietary intake, as well as internal concentrations in adults and toddlers. Ecotoxicology and environmental fate of persistent organic pollutants, particularly  brominated flame retardants. Persistent organic pollutants including contaminants of emerging concern in the Arctic.
