The research of my group focuses on the development of analytical separation methods. The areas of interest target understanding of the origins of air pollution and its relation to climate changes and health, the detailed characterization of biofuels, and determination of biologically active species. The methods developed typically involve the use of chromatographic techniques with various types of detectors, mainly mass spectrometry (MS), e.g., the instrumentation which is frequently used in research and industry. In our approach, the importance of sample preparation is emphasized, particularly the impact of possible matrix-analyte interactions. This is essential not only for the correct determination of analytes in various matrices, but also for studies involving fate (availability) of the analytes within various processes. More info about the projects can be found on the research link.
