My research interests revolve around plastic pollution, focusing on microplastics, because of its ubiquity in the environment. I plan to study marine pollution of plastic in a wide range of sizes, as well as to estimate its abundance and characteristics, and identify the processes that influence its transportation and distribution in the environment.
