About Florence

I work as an associate research fellow in the International Marine Litter Research Unit. My area of research focuses on investigating the pathways, transport potential and distribution of vehicle tyre wear pollution in the environment. 
I currently work on a NERC funded project, TYRE LOSS, led by UoP which measures concentrations of tyre particles at their points of entry to the marine environment and describe their subsequent transport in the water column.
