Jes Vollertsen

Jes Vollertsen is Professor of Environmental Engineering at Aalborg University, Denmark. His background is biological and chemical processes and pollutants in urban waters. His microplastics work focuses on analytical methods for quantification with the goal to contribute to trustworthy, fast, and affordable methods to quantify microplastics in the environment. His work targets all types of matrixes, e.g. water, wastewater, biota, food, soil, sediments, biosolids, air, etcetera. He addresses the processes behind mitigation technologies and attempts to quantify the load of microplastics on the natural environment. He addresses aspects of the physical, chemical, and biological breakdown of microplastics in the environment.

Supervisor II – Fan Liu
@ Fan Liu

Fan Liu is a Postdoc at Aalborg University, Denmark. Her background is urban water engineering with a specific focus on the fate and mitigation of micropollutants in urban waters.  Fan Liu conducted her PhD at Aalborg University from 2015 to 2019, on the occurrence and fate of microplastic pollution in stormwater-related environments. The study provided first detailed results on microplastics (≥10 µm) in urban and highway stormwater using µFTIR imaging. Currently Fan Liu is working on method development of microplastics in various environmental matrixes, aiming to provide a profound method to address and quantify the source, fate, and mitigation of microplastics in the freshwater environment.
