Research group: Water, Environmental and Food Chemistry (ENFOCHEM)
Francesc Labad is a chemistry student working on his PhD research at the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (Barcelona, Spain). His MSc thesis consists on the effect of using reclaimed wastewater for crop irrigation by means of the uptake of pharmaceutically active compounds (PhACs) of these crops. In his PhD research, he is continuing the previous work including PhACs metabolization by means of the crop plant but also the study of soil, water and specific wildlife. He is working in methods based on liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry of low resolution like Q-Exactive Orbitrap and in high resolution such as Hybrid Q-ToF.
