Interessi di ricerca

ITA - La sua principale linea di ricerca riguarda lo sviluppo di metodi innovativi per il monitoraggio della qualità dell’aria e la valutazione dell’impatto sulla salute e sull’ambiente del particolato atmosferico.

Attualmente è impegnato in diverse attività di ricerca riguardanti: caratterizzazione chimica, attribuzione delle sorgenti emissive e valutazione dell'impatto sulla salute del particolato atmosferico (PM) in ambienti outdoor e indoor; valutazione del potenziale ossidativo del PM; studio della capacità del PM di indurre stress ossidativo ed effetti tossici in organismi modello/sperimentali; valutazione dell’efficienza delle green technologies per la riduzione degli effetti sulla salute del PM; studio della distribuzione spaziale e temporale delle componenti del PM in aree urbane e industriali; biomonitoraggio dell’esposizione all’inquinamento atmosferico mediante organismi vegetali, animali, licheni e campioni biologici umani non invasivi (urine, capelli, unghie); analisi chimica di alimenti nell’ambito della sicurezza alimentare, del riutilizzo degli scarti alimentari e della tracciabilità geografica.

 

ENG - His main research line concerns the development of innovative methods for air quality monitoring and health and environmental impact assessment of airborne particulate matter.

He is currently involved in several research activities concerning chemical characterisation, source apportionment and health impact assessment of airborne particulate matter (PM) in outdoor and indoor environments; assessment of the oxidative potential of PM; study of the PM ability to induce oxidative stress and toxic effects in model/experimental organisms; evaluation of the efficiency of the green technologies for reducing the health effects of PM; study of the spatial and temporal distribution of PM components in urban and industrial areas; biomonitoring of air pollution exposure using plant and animal organisms, lichens and non-invasive human biological samples (urine, hair, nails); chemical analysis of food in the context of food safety, food waste reuse and geographical traceability.
