Area 2 (‘Environment’): Improve and manage resource use to reduce waste and enhance the environmental sustainability of European animal production
I can contribute in the area 2 and can do analysis of antibiotics in various environmental samples. I´m interest to be participate in a project comparing ecological and conventional animal production regarding waste reduction and economic gain. My research group can contribute by comparing waste from ecological and conventional farms by analysing antibiotics and hormones in environmental and animal samples from farmes. I have a PhD in environmental chemistry and my present research focus on health effects of pharmaceuticals in the environment. I have a long experience of collaborating in multidisciplinary projects. Our laboratory at the Department of Chemistry, Umeå University, has been involved in projects on pharmaceuticals in the environment since the 90ths.
I´m working as a researcher at the Department of Chemistry, Umeå University and our enviromental chemistry laboratory at the department has developed an excellent infrastructure to analyse pharmaceuticals and traditional environmental pollutants.
