Research Interests / Job description
1. Chemical-sensory characterization of malodors emitted from animal production, wastewater treatment plants and biosolid application; Development of odor abatement strategies and technologies.
2. Olive mill wastes recycling (controlled land spreading and composting)ץ
3. Composting processes and compost stability.
4. Soil microbial activity and functional diversity.
5. Dissolved organic matter (DOM) characterization and biodegradation (wastewater effluents-, soil- and compost-DOM).
(Previous research work was focused on sorption interactions of contaminants (PAHs and VOCs) with natural organic matter (humic substances and DOM).
