Researcher interests: Physico-chemical processes of organic pollutants occurring in water, reclaimed wastewater, soils and sediments. Elucidation of physical, chemical and biological processes that influence the fate of organic molecules in the environment, especially in the agricultural environment. Fate and processes of pharmaceutical compounds in the agro-environment. Sorption-desorption behavior. Risks associated with intensive irrigation with reclaimed wastewater. Flame retardants in the environment. Reactivity of dissolved organic matter in the environment. Transformation and degradation of organic pollutants. Nano particles in the environment.
