Research interests

Field of investigations: elucidation of distribution and associations of the total contents of chemical elements determined by x-ray fluorescence in abiotic environmental components (topsoil, Quaternary deposits, dust) of urbanised and natural territories; search for relation between geochemical accumulation in abiotic and biotic environmental components (epiphytic lichens, hair of children) in urbanised territories; determination of the influence of natural factors on background values of chemical elements in topsoil; comparison of associations formed by different types of pollution; estimation of topsoil or surface sediment level of contamination by potentially harmful elements and its change; application of mathematical-statistical methods for treatment of geochemical data; search for geochemical indicators of climate change; application of geochemical methods in archaeology.
