Research interests

Dr Lam’s current research focuses on studying of new persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and contaminants of emerging concern (CECs). Priority CECs of interest encompass flame retardants, perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), and pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs). Specific research interests include:

  • Development of analytical methods for identification and characterization of the occurrences, distributions and fate of environmental contaminants in the ecosystem;
  • Elucidation of exposure pathways to humans and wildlife;
  • Risk assessment for CECs.
