Areas of Interest: Monitoring of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) in the environment (i.e. air, precipitation, and biota) and human exposure to toxic chemicals.

Dr. Marta Venier is an environmental chemist who studies the fate, transport, and behavior of persistent organic pollutants in the indoor and outdoor environment, including both legacy and emerging pollutants. She is particularly interested in persistent organic pollutants (POPs) like polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), organochlorine pesticides, perfluorinated compounds (PFAS), and flame retardants, both brominated and organophosphate esters.

My general research interests are in the fields of environmental chemistry and environmental toxicology. I focused much of my research to-date to the monitoring of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in the environment (i.e. air, precipitation and biota). However, my interests are broader, ranging from human exposure to toxic chemicals to spatial statistics and public health.
