Summary

I am trained as a chemist/analytical chemist. My previous work experience is related to using Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry for various topics relating to Environmental Science. I also have limited experience in protein biochemistry. 

I am currently working in the broader context of monitoring the health of a population and determining potential risk factors by complementing the estimates and assessment of internal and external/environmental exposure to chemicals which are known to have adverse health effects. This is done by employing high resolution mass spectrometry (LC-QTOFMS & GC-Orbitrap-MS)  to discover other hitherto unknown chemicals which could potentially be linked to adverse health effects. 

My ideal job would involve working with Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry techniques for various studies (determining the presence, levels and profiles or organic chemicals in various matrices).

Past Experience

  • PhD Candidate Antwerp, Belgium
    July 2011 --- February 2016

    During my PhD I worked on investigating a broad range of commonly-used consumer goods (electronics, furniture, carpets, curtains, plastic toys etc.) and building construction materials using screening tools such as GC-MS and LC-TOFMS. The principal focus is on identifying and quantifying FRs hitherto either un- or rarely -detected, followed by screening for their presence in indoor air and dust. My work also involves highlighting and providing analytical methods for “emerging” FRs.
