PhD student in Environmental Science focused on Analytical Chemistry
Studies the behaviour of pharmaceuticals during wastewater treatment
For detailed information, please see the different headlines under my name in the menu to the left.
Dissertation date decided!
It is now decided that I will defend my thesis with the preliminary title "Sorption and transformation of polar pharmaceticals during wastewater treatment studied by hollow fiber liquid phase microextraction" on the 20th of December in lecture hall B at Chemical Centre, Lund.
On the 9th of April I was visited in the lab by three high school students from Hässleholm. The got to see what a usual day for a researcher looks like and also to do some hands-on work by trying out membrane extraction. I hope this could work as an inspiration for future studies in chemistry.

World Water Day
At the world water day, the 22nd of March, I was invited to an event for secondary school teachers at Vattenhallen Science Centre arranged by Sydvatten/KILU/Vattenhallen. I gave a talk about my research and the teachers also got the possibility to try membrane extraction which they seemed to enjoy a lot! More pictures can be found here.
New article published
In a previous study we have shown that no detectable uptake takes place of the anti-inflammatory drugs ketoprofen, naproxen diclofenac and ibuprofen into neither wheat nor soybean when fertilization with sewage sludge is performed even when twice the recommended amount of sludge is employed. The paper is now published in Science of the Total Environment, 449 (2013), 385-389.
