Title of PhD: Using forensic microscopy to elucidate pathways of halogenated flame retardant migration into indoor dust
Supervisor: Professor Stuart Harrad
Cassandra Rauert is undertaking research into brominated flame retardants in the indoor environment in a collaborative project under the INFLAME program (EU-funded under the Marie Curie Initial Training Network). The project focuses on migration pathways of flame retardants from treated products around the home/office into indoor dust which leads to human contamination. Emission chamber experiments and microscopy will be utilized in these experiments.
