Research group: Environmental Pollution & Agriculture (EPA)
Đorđe Tadić received in 2012 an M.Sc. in Food Engineering from the University of Novi Sad, Serbia (Faculty of Technology Novi Sad). The research part of his master thesis was performed at the Department of Biotechnology, Microbiology and Food Safety of the Biotechnical Faculty in Ljubljana, Slovenia; where the antimicrobial activity of phenolic extracts capsulated in β-cyclodekstrine and liposome was studied. After his master graduation, he worked in a sugar factory, where he was in charge for controlling technological parameters of sugar production and product quality. From October 2014, he has been working at the “Center of Excellence in Food Safety and Emerging Risks, Laboratory for Chemical Contaminants and Mass Spectrometry” at the Faculty of Technology, Novi Sad. He worked on the development and validation of methods for the analysis of different groups of organic pollutants. Analysis of persistent organic pollutants was performed employing UPLC-MS, GC-MS and GS-µECD in water, soil and food samples. Currently he is employed as an Early-Stage Researcher of the ANSWER project at IDAEA-CSIC and he is a Ph.D. student at the Technical University of Catalonia - Barcelona School of Biosystems and Agri-Food Engineering. His research focuses on the uptake of antibiotics and antibacterial contaminants and their metabolites in crops; the fate of antibiotics in soil-root system and on the identifying key physico-chemical properties affecting uptake, translocation and metabolization of antibiotics in field-scale irrigation and greenhouse experiments.
