Research interests:

Within my PhD project I investigate the fate and transport of microplastic particles in the interface of fluvial/terrestrial systems in Rhine floodplains of Cologne, Germany. A special concern is the investigation of vertical transport mechanisms of microplastic in these floodplain soils to estimate the potential migration into groundwater.
