Research Interests

Simulation and controlling anthropogenic flows from environmental compartments into waters:
e.g. flame retardants, sucralose, mercury flows.
Water household in third world countries: early recognition of anthropogenic influences.


Mathematical Material Flow Analysis (MMFA) Framework
Handbook and manual of mathematical material flow analysis (MMFA). MMFA is the method to describe, simulate and evaluate possible mitigation measures for anthropogenic material- and substance flows with mathematical models in a comprehensive way.
