Research Interests

Exposure assessment to indoor and outdoor air pollutants: In particular, my area of interest is the development and validation of new measurement methods for an improved physical and chemical characterization of particles to meet epidemiological requirements. I’m interested in the source apportionment and the spatial variability of fine and ultrafine particles, as well as in the relationship between indoor, outdoor and personal exposure to particulate air pollution.
