Research group: Water, Environmental and Food Chemistry (ENFOCHEM)
PhD Student of Analytical Chemistry of University of Barcelona in the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research IDAEA-CSIC. The main objectives of my work in IDAEA-CSIC is to determine the presence through an analytical method based on liquid chromatography coupled to high resolution mass spectrometry (LC-HRMS) and to estimate the chemical-ecotoxicological emerging risks of the microplastics (e.g. polystyrene) in real environmental samples. This research includes also the toxic behaviour of microplastics, especially metabolomics and cytotoxic effects in human cells.
