Patrolecco Luisa

Patrolecco Luisa She graduated in Chemistry in 1993 at the University of Rome "La Sapienza". From 1996 to 2019 she worked at the Water Research Institute (IRSA-CNR) as responsible of the laboratory for the analysis of Priority and Emerging Organic Micropollutants in Aquatic Ecosystems. Since 1 August 2019 she is a researcher at the Institute of Polar Sciences (ISP-CNR), as Head of the Secondary Office (RSS) in Rome (ISP Montelibretti and ISP Tor Vergata).
Scientific interests:
Study of the environmental behaviour of organic micro- and macro-pollutants in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems in temperate and polar areas, from the recognition of the sources, to the dynamics of diffusion, to the environmental impact. Particular attention was paid to hazardous and priority pollutants, according to the WFD (including PAHs, PCBs, organochlorine pesticides and their metabolites, PBDEs), endocrine disruptors (steroid hormones, surfactant metabolites, plasticizers) and emerging contaminants (pharmaceutical residues, antibiotics, personal care products, fragrances, perfluorinated compounds, new generation pesticides).
The research activities are aimed at:

- development and validation of advanced analytical methodologies (GC-MS, LC-MS and LC-MS / MS) for the characterization and monitoring of classes of organic pollutants in different environmental compartments (sea water, river water, ground water, wastewater, sediments, suspended particles, soil, organisms);

- study of the diffusion dynamics of legacy and emerging organic contaminants in polar marine ecosystems (Arctic, Antarctica) and their distribution in the atmosphere / ice / sea / sediment / biota compartments as a function of seasonal and climatic changes;

- partition studies of contaminants (speciation and bioavailability); accumulation / bioaccumulation / biomagnification; persistence and transformation (abiotic and biotic degradation), interaction and possible effects on the biological sphere at different trophic levels (microorganisms, organisms); ecotoxicological effects due to multiple contamination;

- circulation and physical-chemical characterization of organic matter in marine and transitional environments.

He has participated in over 25 oceanographic and sampling campaigns in the Mediterranean and Arctic environments.
Author of 60 ISI international publications, 70 publications / contributions with ISSN or ISBN, over 50 Technical Reports / National and International Project Reports.
