Field of research: Microplastics

PhD thesis:

„Detection and Analysis of Microplastics in River Sediments“

In my PhD thesis I aim to

1) investigate existing methods to detect microplastics,
2) develop new methods, especially in the field of density separation, and
3) apply these methods to quantify microplastics in river sediments."
