1| Analytical and Environmental Chemistry with emphasis in the development of multidimensional analytical strategies for decoding the complexity of natural organic matter from different environmental compartments (atmosphere, water, soils).


2| Development of expertise in the application of different sophisticated analytical techniques (One-Dimensional and Two-Dimensional NMR, FTIR-ATR, and Excitation-Emission Matrix Fluorescence Spectroscopies, and Two-Dimensional Liquid Chromatography coupled to different detectors) for unravelling complex organic environmental matrices.


3| Development of mathematical tools for data processing in multidimensional analytical strategies applied to complex organic mixtures.


4| Composition of organic aerosol.


5| Atmospheric stressors.


6| Wet and dry deposition of organic aerosols.


7| Comparison of structural features of natural organic matter from different environmental matrices (waters vs. atmosphere vs. soils).
