Eugenia Valsami-Jones - Research in 60 seconds videoProfessor Valsami-Jones’ research interests focus on understanding reactivity at the nanoscale, particularly interactions of nanoparticles with pollutants and biota and biomineralisation processes. She has carried out research on the interaction of a variety of carbon- and metal-based nano-objects with biota in vitro and in vivo and has pioneered novel methods of labelling nanomaterials. She has also worked on understanding the formation and stability of biogenic apatite.
