Personal information

Area of research:

  • The use of biochar in soil remediation or water and wastewater treatment
  • Waste (mainly sewage sludge and solid residues from biogas production) utilization and management
  • Fate of organic  (PAHs) and inorganic (heavy metals) contaminants  in environmental (soil, water, sediments) and anthropogenic samples (sewage sludges, residues from biogas production, food);
  • Nanoparticles in the environment (fate, modifications, toxicity)
  • Hydrochemical methods as means to interpretation of natural and anthropogenic changes in water quality
