About Me

Research Scientist, Head Molecular Environmental Geochemistry


Research Interests

  • Speciation and fate of trace elements and phosphorus in natural and engineered environments
  • Nanoparticle formation and its impact on contaminant and nutrient dynamics
  • Influence of variable redox conditions on trace element behavior
  • Element speciation by synchrotron-based X-ray absorption spectroscopy

Research Projects

  • Diffuse phosphorus input into surface waters (P-TRAP). Use of iron solids for P trapping.
  • Sorption of thallium to illite and birnessite and its impact on the solubility of thallium in soils.
  • Behaviour of metals in the urban water cycle (PI Ralf Kaegi, Eawag)
  • Redox properties of iron minerals (PI Thomas Hofstetter, Eawag)

Teaching

  • Biogeochemistry of Trace Elements (masters level, ETH Zurich, 701-1315-00L)
  • Practical Course Biogeochemistry - Part Trace Elements (bachelor level, ETH Zurich, 701-0420-01L)
