About Camilla Catarci Carteny

I am currently researching (micro)plastic pollution, mostly in the marine environment. My FWO project Microplastics in the marine environment: putting biodegradability in the picture aims to compare the degradation and fragmentation of biodegradable and traditional polymers in seawater - and their toxicity to aquatic organisms.

I also collaborate with the Product Ontwikkeling (Product Design) Department, following Master students on sustainable design - such as Laure Herweyers and her award-winning FIBIO - which can contribute in solving the microplastic pollution issue.
