University of Vienna
WP8 Postdoc Nathalie Tepe is also working at the University of Vienna.
Nathalie is interested in the fate of natural and engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) in aquatic systems, interactions between ENPs in natural waters and the development and advancement of characterization methods for ENPs.
"For WP 8, our working group is developing different methods to estimate attachment efficiencies between different kinds of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs), suspended materials and natural organic matter in freshwater systems. We are also responsible for developing a method to measure dissolution rates of ENMs under specific freshwater conditions. I really love that my work in WP 8 has a strong research focus and that I can work for hours in the laboratory."
