He has vast experience in the fields of analytical, food, and environmental chemistry, and his main interests are the study of nutrients and contaminants transfer in the soil-water-plant system under abiotic stress and the use of mass spectrometry techniques (in particular, LC-MS/MS and ICP-MS) in the analysis of both nutrients and contaminants in food and environmental matrices. His highly-interdisciplinary research covers the areas of food, clinical, environmental, and analytical chemistry. For the last 10 years, he has been a researcher in 10 projects with competitive funding. He is the author of more than 50 scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals.
