Introduction
My research is focused on micro pollutants : occurrence (in particular with an expertise in analytical developments related to the quantification of trace organic contaminants) and fate (expertise in environmental reactivity –photooxydation, biodegradation) of organic micropollutants in the environment) and effects (ecotoxicology in collaboration with ecotoxicologists).

Dredged contaminated sediments are considered as waste. Traditional solutions to the management of these sediments are dumping at sea, disposal to landfills or use as public work materials (back-filling, noise protection slope, landscape mound). To assess its potential impacts on human health and the environment, dredged material must be characteri...
