Prof. Gerhard Lammel
PI of "Chemodynamics of environmental pollution" research group
Prof. Gerhard Lammel earned a diploma degree from University of Freiburg, Germany in 1985, a PhD from Max Planck Institute for Chemistry / University of Mainz, Germany in 1988, and a university teaching thesis for Environmental Chemistry from University of Hohenheim, Stuttgart, Germany in 2000. Until 2007 he pursued research in atmospheric and total environmental chemistry with Karlsruhe Research Centre, Germany, University of California / Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA, and Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, Hamburg, Germany.
Currently, he is affiliated with both the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry and RECETOX at Masaryk University, which he joined in 2006 and where he is now a full professor of Environmental Chemistry (part time). His research is on the environmental exposure to organic pollutants on large spatial and temporal scales, using field experiments, laboratory studies and multicompartmental modelling. As PI he has attracted >10 national and international research projects and directed a number of international field campaigns.
He is an author of >130 scientific publications which have been cited >3800 times, h-index is 31. He has contributed to a number of scientific assessments for policy advice and in the 1990s he had been working at the science-policy interface i.e., the German Advisory Council on Global Change. He is teaching the courses of Atmospheric Chemistry.
