She is a specialist in thallium speciation in natural samples and in environmental sample preparation for speciation analysis. She has been a reviewer of so called “green technology” processes submitted to GreenEvo foundation and in the framework of “Green Technology Accelerator” (Ministry of Environment).

“Naturally, my research subjects are natural”

She places great emphasis on popularisation of knowledge of biogeochemical cycling of elements in the environment.
