I am an ecotoxicologist with solid competence in analytical chemistry. I have been involved in projects evaluating the effects of environmental and anthropogenic stressors associated to aquaculture, oil & gas production, municipal sewage discharges using combined chemical, biological and ecological monitoring tools. More recently I specialized myself in chemical quantification and characterization of polymers in environmental matrices and their associated biological effects on model organisms. I project lead research initiatives toward the method development to estimate micro and nanoplastics occurrence and composition in marine, freshwater and terrestrial environments. I am the scientific coordinator of the North Atlantic Microplastic Centre and a member several expert groups dealing with plastic pollution including ICES, AMAP and ISO.
