About Rudolf Aro

My research project aims to investigate the current human and environmental exposure levels to unidentified PFASs. This will help to better understand of these compounds are released to the environment and that are their sources. The final stage is to identify these unknown substances. My background is in metrology, traceability and uncertainty analysis.
