Research area interest lies in the area of mycotoxins and other secondary metabolites of fungi, plants and bacteria.  This includes: novel LC-MS based methods for the rapid and accurate quantification of these biotoxins and their modified forms in food and feed; determination of appropriate biomarkers to assess the exposure of humans; metabolomics based approaches to study plant-fungi- interactions; integrated strategies to mitigate the issue of mycotoxins along the entire food chain in coop. with China.


PhD and Post-doc opportunities are constantly available. Please, get in touch with me, if interested in conducting research on the topics mentioned above.
