Christian Nyrop Albers
My research interests are widespread within environmental sciences, especially within the terrestrial environment (both Arctic and Temperate). Special areas of interest are the formation and fate of chlorinated compounds, the fate of pesticides in soil and groundwater and the interactions between pollutants and soil organic matter.
March 2014-?: Employed as Senior Research Scientist at GEUS, the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland.
August 2010-February 2014: Employed as Research Scientist at GEUS, the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland.
March 2007-February 2010: PhD-fellow at the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland - GEUS, enrolled as a Ph.d.-student at Roskilde University, Department of Science, Systems and Models. PhD thesis: Natural halogenated compounds in forest soils – formation, leaching, emissions and spatiotemporal patterns of chloroform and related compounds (defended successfully on June 14., 2010).
December 2006: MSc, Chemistry and Environmental Biology, Roskilde University, Masters Thesis: Influence of humic substances on the fate of glyphosate and diuron in soil (in Danish).
2004: BSc, Chemistry and Environmental Biology, Roskilde University, Main thesis: Influence of Arenicola marina on removal and microbial degradation of PAH´s and alkanes (in Danish).
Practical field work has been a central part of most of the projects in which I have participated during both my University studies as well as at GEUS. The field work has been mostly about collecting environmental samples (groundwater, soil, soil air and air fluxes from soil, sand filter material, vegetation etc.) for various subsequent chemical analyses in the laboratory. The field work has been carried out in Denmark as well as arctic and subarctic environments.
