Claudia Campanale

National Research Council

Dr. Claudia Campanale is a pioneering researcher in monitoring emerging pollutants in environmental matrices and extreme environments through a multidisciplinary approach and based on analytical evidence integrated by a biological and ecological vision. She uses Py-GC-MS and micro FTIR techniques for purification and characterization methods. Her microplastic research is focused on identifying and quantifying persistent organic pollutants sorbed on microplastics to investigate the role of these contaminants of emerging concern as carriers of hazardous chemicals to marine environments. She is an expert in analytical chemistry techniques such as HPLC-MS, GC-MS, ICP-MS to characterize and quantify pollutants (inorganic and organic) in environmental matrices (water, soil, sediment). Hard work, dedication, and passion are the basis of research.
