Following her academic studies, Susanna worked in EU regulatory ecotoxicology where she gained experience in Biocidal Products Regulation and REACH.
Currently, Susanna is employed as ESR13 at the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences at the University of Sheffield (United Kingdom). Her research focuses on evaluating ecosystem services and risk assessment.
|Project title:||Ecosystem services and risk assessment|
|Objectives:||Evaluate available tools for applying ecosystem services approach to chemical risk assessment. Identify key information gaps.
Use novel approaches from ecology, ecotoxicology and modelling to address information gaps identified in first objective.
Apply novel and existing approaches to evaluate the risk of chemical to ecosystem service of case study chemicals.
||Systematic review of the applicability of current ecotoxicological methods for assessing the risk of chemicals and other stressors to ecosystem service delivery.
Tools for facilitating translation of conventional ecotoxicological endpoints to ecosystem service assessment endpoints.
The tools and approaches required to assess the effects of chemical on ecosystem service delivery.
