Career Summary

Biography

My passion within the field of environmental risk assessment and remediation was, and remains, my motivation for my current research at the UoN. After obtaining my MSc degree (Distinction) in Contamination, Risk Assessment, and Remediation at Lancaster University, United Kingdom, the opportunity opened up to join Professor Ravi Naidu's group at the Global Centre for Environmental Remediation (GCER), UON - An unbelievable opportunity to work with a world-acclaimed research leader within a top research environment. So here I am. Currently, I am researching the Bioaccessibility of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Long-term Contaminated Soils. My focus is to investigate how soil-contaminant-organism properties modifies potential human health and environmental risks from exposure to toxic contaminants in soil. I hope to enjoy my time throughout my stay in Newcastle.
