My main research interest is the fate of pollutants in the environment with a special emphasis on mercury biogeochemistry in rivers, lakes, ponds, wetlands, soils and the ocean. More specifically, I focus on the processes controlling the concentration of methylmercury in the landscape and its further biomagnification in food chains. I combine ecosystem, experimental, biogeochemical, molecular and “omics” approaches with the study of food web’s structure to investigate the environmental factors controlling Hg cycling in the environment and to determine the human exposure to this pollutant.
