ANAGNOSTOPOULOS RESEARCH GROUP
Dr. Anagnostopoulos received his M.Sc. in Analytical Chemistry (Environmental Track) and his Ph.D. in Radiochemistry from University of Patras, Greece.
He is an expert in contaminant (e.g. heavy metals, radionuclides and organic molecules) environmental fate.
His research group studies the mechanisms governing contaminant environmental mobility through sorption, metal-ligand complexation and substrate-water interface redox studies, using speciation, kinetic and thermodynamic modelling. He has extensive experience in traditional analytical, as well as radioanalytical techniques.
He has participated in worldwide standard material testing trials organized by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and he has spearheaded projects funded by the Department of Energy - Office of Environmental Management and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Dr. Ruiz Garcia received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Environmental Chemistry from the Department of Earth Sciences from the Autonomous National University of Mexico.
He has studied extensively the mechanisms of sorption and redox processes between heavy metals and natural substrates in the mineral-water interface and his expertise includes geochemical modelling using surface complexation and cation exchange models and surface characterization spectroscopic techniques (XRD, XPS, and synchrotron techniques).
He is currently studying the stability and the effect that Mn(III)-Ligand redox active complexes have on the mobility of radionuclides, as well as Tc-99 incorporation to iron-titanates.
