Lines of Research
Organic Geochemistry of Natural Waters
Foreign languages used
We develop projects on continental and marine aquatic ecosystems through analyzes of natural and anthropogenic organic biomarkers (eg methane, carbon dioxide, lignin phenols, fatty acids, polycyclic aliphatic hydrocarbons and sterols) in different environmental matrices (eg: gas, effluents, organisms, water suspended particles, surface and core sediments).
Study background required
- Oceanography, Biology, Environmental Engineering, Chemistry and related fields
- Previous experience in laboratory activities related to environmental chemistry
Possible risks envolved
Exposure hazards with solvents (hexane, methanol, dichloromethane, ethyl acetate and pyridine).
