Research interests

ECOTOXICOLOGY and ENVIRONMENTAL RISK ASSESSMENT
acute and chronic bioassays with target and non-target species (algae, invertebrates and vertebrates);
Persistence, bioaccumulation and environmental concentration prediction of emerging antifouling biocides;
Proteomics analysis (shotgun proteomics) to improve knowledge into the mode of action of antifouling biocides;

ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING and PROTECTION
Validation of biomarkers and bioindicators of marine pollution

OCEAN WARMING and CLIMATE CHANGE
Impacts of climate change, namely pH and temperature, on bivalves and molluscs
