Tim Boogaerts works with Alexander van Nuijs, Adrian Covaci and Hans De Loof at the Toxicological Centre on the analysis of influent wastewater on human health biomarkers (e.g. prescription opioids, antidepressants,...) and lifestyle-related indicators (e.g. alcohol, illicit drugs,...). His PhD-project is mainly focused on the application of wastewater-based epidemiology as a complementary information source to assess and prevent the opioid burden in (Belgian) communities. More information on this research project can be found on the Research section.
