Main research areas: ECOHYDROLOGY – a sub-discipline of hydrology that focuses on ecological processes occurring within the hydrological cycle and strives to utilize such processes for enhancing environmental sustainability: 1) Use of Ecosystem Processes in River and Lake Basins for Reduction of various forms of human impact and enhancement of water ecosystems services, biodiversity and resilience (Eutrophication, Toxic Algal Blooms, Sedimentation) 2) Restoration of Water and Ecosystem Resources in Urbanized Spaces for Economic Development, Human Health and Quality of Life Improvement.
Main research areas: Investigation of the sources and migration paths of xenobiotics (mainly priority hazardous substances and contaminants of emerging concern) in the environment; Identification of risks arising from the presence of the xenobiotics in the environment; Development of efficient and environmentally-friendly methods (bio-, phytoremediation) for the elimination of the xenobiotics from the environment.
