Current Research Activities

Chemical Sciences

I am currently evaluating the occurrence of microplastics in ocean water samples off the coast of Fortaleza (Brazil) and how this microplastic contamination affects marine environments. This research aims to characterize the microplastics morphologically and chemically to know the possible sources and origins of microplastics pollutions.
