2000/2001. Field season to Antarctica. Scientist

2003/2004. Field season to Antarctica. Chief Scientist

 

Research areas:

1)      Aroma components of wines. Trend analysis has been proved successful in detecting concentration changes in certain aroma components during storage often commercial white wines in real environmental conditions (Ref. 1).

2)      Elements analysis. Development and application of novel analytical methodologies based on inductively coupled plasma sector field mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and HPLC/ICP-Quadrupole-MS for the determination and speciation analysis of trace elements (heavy metals, selenoprotein) in environmental (aerosol, water, snow) and biological matrices (human serum). (Ref. 2, 3, 5, 6, 9, 13, 16, 21, 27, 34, 46, 47, 52, 54, 60, 62, 63, 65, 66, 68, 72, 73, 75, 76, 86, 90, 91, 93, 105, 107, 108, 111, 117).

3)      DMS and DMSP. Study of sulphur species and relationship to biogeochemical cycles in urban and pristine environments. (Ref. 4, 10, 14, 18, 22, 23, 41).

4)      Cultural heritage. Chemical characterization of paper documents and inks. (Ref. 45, 48, 53, 57, 69)

5)      Persistent organic pollutants. Sources, environmental cycling, fate and behaviour of persistent organic pollutants in the atmosphere, soils and oceans. Development of gas chromatography mass spectrometry-based advanced analytical methodology for trace and ultra-trace determinations in environmental and biological matrices in polar and temperate environment. (Ref. 7, 8, 11, 12, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 24, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 42, 49, 50, 51, 55, 77, 78, 79, 84, 85, 92, 94, 95, 97, 98, 99, 106, 111, 113, 117, 119)

6)      Water soluble compounds. Fate, behaviour and processing of water soluble organic compounds in the environment matrixes (aerosol, water, biota, sediment). Development of liquid chromatography mass spectrometry-based advanced analytical methodology for trace and ultra-trace determinations in environmental and biological matrices. (Ref. 43, 44, 56, 58, 59, 61, 64, 67, 70, 71, 74, 80, 81, 82, 83, 87, 88, 89, 96, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 108, 109, 110, 112, 114, 115, 116, 118)
