Maria Lagerström

Researcher at Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Division of Maritime Studies

Maria is a researcher at the unit of Maritime Environmental Sciences and studies antifouling paints used for the protection of submerged vessel hulls against biofouling. With a background in environmental chemistry, the focus of her research is to study the chemical substances emitted from antifouling paints, the parameters affecting their release to the water and their environmental fate and impact. She specializes in the use of X-Ray Fluorescence spectrometry (XRF) to measure the release rate of biocides from antifouling coatings and as a tool to investigate how to reduce their environmental impact.
