My aim is the design of novel analytical workflows that provide new perspectives on the interface of Analytical Chemistry, Environmental and Life sciences as well as Medicine and Nanotechnology. The major focus of my research is the development and application of new strategies for the characterisation of elements, their distribution, and speciation in environmental and biological systems. I am interested in recent advances and new instrumentation in the field of ICP-MS as well as associated hyphenated techniques like HPLC-ICP-MS and LA-ICP-MS and employ these techniques to provide innovative solutions for the trace analysis in complex matrices. Additionally, single particle methodologies for ICP-MS (single particle ICP-MS) are developed and applied to characterise the interaction between emerging nanomaterials and biological tissues or environmental systems.
