Associate Professor (Head of the Analytical Research Group; Chair of Urban Water Systems Engineering, TUM)
Continuing Analytical Research
- Mass spectrometric platforms in target screening, suspects and hiddens screening and non-target screening in combination with biofunctional assays.
- Research fields are the environment, food and plants.
- Mechanistic studies to expand the knowledge in chromatographic techniques like RPLC, HILIC and SFC.
- Practical HILIC and SFC publications and seminars to bring it in use in more laboratories for the analysis of very polar molecules.
Continuing in combining instrumental analysis, environmental chemistry and bioinformatics resulting in the FOR-IDENT platform, openMASP platform, Achroma and others
