Research Interests

  • Biogeochemistry of new "emerging" contaminants (at present pharmaceuticals and related compounds) in marine coastal ecosystems
  • Biogeochemistry of persistent organic contaminants (PAH, PCBS, HCB, lindane)
  • Assessment of organisms exposure to organic contaminants (POPs and new "emerging" contaminants) in marine coastal ecosystems Geochronology of contemporary sediments based on 210Pb sediment dating
  • Biogeochemistry of heavy metals in the Baltic Sea and European Arctic Seas
  • Biogeochemistry of inorganic contaminants: radionuclides (210Pb, 234Th, 137Cs, 239,240Pu, 99Tc) and trace metals (Pb, Cd, Cr, Co etc.)
  • Radionuclides as tools to study oceanographical processes
  • Chemical munitions in the Baltic Sea – risk and assessment
  • Multivariate statistical analysis as a tool in marine geochemical studies
  • Climate change impact on the Baltic Sea environment
