Sara Novak is a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Ljubljana. Her PhD aimed at investigating the internalisation of nanoparticles in terrestrial crustacean.
Her expertise are in light and electron microscopy (SEM, FIB/SEM), X-ray based techniques, sample preparation for microscopy and spectroscopy and flame atomic absorption spectroscopy. She was involved in NanoMile, and NanoValid projects.
She just finished her independent Slovenian government funded project on the effects of titanium dioxide nanoparticles on freshwater crustacean. The project was in close cooperation with Slovenian large industrial producer of TiO2. In the first year of NanoFASE she investigates how isopod gut conditions are impacting the transformations of nanoparticles in the animal. She will be involved in biokinetic studies with terrestrial crustaceans.
