I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Soil Science Research Group of the University of Berne. Before starting my Postdoc I studied Chemistry at the University of Ghana, Braunschweig University of Technology (Germany) and University of Mainz (Germany) where I obtained my BSc, MSc, and PhD, respectively. My PhD thesis on the topic Oxygen-containing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (OPAHs) and their parent-PAHs in soil: analysis, sources and fate was supervised by Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Wilcke and Prof. Dr. Thorsten Hoffmann. My Masters thesis was conducted at the Institute of Chemistry and Dynamics of the Geosphere II (Troposphere), Reasearch Centre Julich under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ralph Koppmann and Prof. Dr. Müfit Bahadir. I am a member of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC), International Panel on Chemical Pollution (IPCP), German Soil Science Society (DBG) and the Polar-PAC Network.

  • Analysis and fate of organic pollutants (PAHs, oxygenated-PAHs, nitrated-PAHs, azaarenes, PBDEs, PCBs and their derivatives)
  • Use of Compound-Specific Isotope Analysis (C, H, N, O) in studies of sources and fate of organic pollutants
  • Biological sources of PAHs in Tropical Ecosystems
  • Atmospheric Chemistry
  • Air Pollution
  • Environmental Health
  • Palaeoenvironmental studies (with concentration and isotopic composition of PAHs, C, N, S and elemental/black carbon as proxies for human and climate induced environmental changes)
Number of items: 30.
