Research activity
Scientific area: 
Analytical chemistry
Research activity: 
The focus of researches is Environmental Chemistry (air pollution) and Analytical Chemistry, with special concern for organic micro-contaminants (toxic chemicals, emerging, indoor, semi-volatile, gaseous...). Nowadays the major topics of investigations and scientific activity are: - indoor organic pollution and its links with internal and external sources; - "new contaminants" (endocrine disruptors, groups of chemicals regarded as emerging): psychotropic substances, pharmaceuticals, preservatives, additives..; - dust (settled particulate matter and powder): chemical composition and relationships with fine and ultra-fine particulates and gas phase.
