Personal profile

Research profile

Via VU Amsterdam, Institute of Applied Geosciences of TNO, and IHE Delft, in 2023, I arrived at TU. My research interests address environmental water quality issues with a focus on:

- artificial DNA, either free or encapsulated, as a marker to study mass transport processes in hydrology;

- groundwater safety and the transport of bacteria and viruses in groundwater and surface water systems;

- fate of colloids, like plastics and engineered nanomaterials in environmental waters;

- water and sanitation in slums in sub-Saharan Africa (T-GroUP website, SCUSA website);
