Dr. Barbara Kasprzyk-Hordern

Reader in Environmental and Analytical Chemistry

Dr. Barbara Kasprzyk-Hordern is a Reader in Environmental and Analytical Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Bath. She received her PhD in Chemistry from Adam Mickiewicz University. Having completed her PhD she worked as a lecturer at the Faculty of Chemistry at Adam Mickiewicz University, a Marie Curie Transfer of Knowledge Research Fellow in Analytical Environmental Toxicology at the University of Glamorgan and a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Analytical Science at the University of Huddersfield and at the University of Bath. Her principal research interests fall into the three interrelated research areas of environmental, analytical and water sciences. She is particularly interested in water pollution and novel technologies used to decrease contamination of water. Her recent interests are related to urban water and human epidemiology.
