Biogeochemical processes of trace metals, isotopic geochemistry




Works at

Postdoctoral fellow at Department of Chemistry

My research is focused on the speciation of contaminants (trace metals) in the environment, and more specifically their interaction with organic and/or natural mineral colloids. I study the controlling factors as the physicochemical conditions (pH, light, redox conditions, complexation, sorption ...) on isotope fractionation of stable non-traditional isotopes. I'm interested in mechanisms elucidation of biogeochemical processes through isotopic fractionation. In this project, we aim to evaluate and optimize a methodology to trace and quantify the spread of Hg from contaminated sediment sites to surrounding sediment and pelagic and benthic biota using Hg stable isotope measurements.
