Melanie Egli is a PhD student within the Emerging Chemical Contaminants Team at ERG and at the MRC Centre for Environment and Health.

Her project investigates new ways to monitor population-level health and activity during a pandemic using wastewater-based epidemiology. She also focusses on identifying and quantifying environmental risks of trace chemical contaminants in aquatic ecosystems using advanced analytical chemistry including liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) at scale.

Melanie's work is supervised by Dr Leon Barron and Dr Frédéric Piel.
