Current Research Interests

My main interest is related to the formation and evolution of pollution aerosols, by the way of various micro-analytical techniques, such as Scanning Electron Microscopy and Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectrometry. These techniques give new insights about the internal mixing of individual aerosol particles.

As a chemist, my research expertise is also applied to the tropospheric chemistry of heavy metals such as iron (Fe), zinc, cadmium or copper as (isotopic) tracers of sources and processes of atmospheric pollution.

My ongoing projects concern the contribution of pollution aerosols, relative to desert dusts, to the delivery of soluble Fe to the oceans and more particularly the partitioning between soluble and particulate Fe during tropospheric transport, as well as the related shifts in the Fe isotopic composition (collaboration with the Free University Brussels, G-Time Laboratory, Prof. Nadine Mattielli – https://gtime.ulb.be/nadine-mattielli/).
