Tetyana’s research group is dedicated to developing innovative hybrid nanocomposite materials and exploring their applications in mitigating pollution caused by both emerging and legal contaminants. The research involves the creation of materials and methods to effectively immobilize, sorb, or degrade emerging groundwater pollutants, e.g., per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, persistent organic pollutants, and metallic contaminants. The group is also developing techniques for integrating sustainable nanocomposite sorbents into the isolating layers that help retain contaminants in underwater sediments. These sustainable hybrid nanocomposite materials are synthesized using functional macromolecules sourced from wood, agriculture, and marine biomass, or in combination with other abundant natural materials with complementary properties.


Sustainability aspects

The research group is dedicated to efforts revolve around sustainable chemistry and the development of sustainable hybrid nanocomposite materials. The goal is to address environmental issues and contribute to creating conditions for a sustainable society. We are committed to producing materials that are sustainable right from the design phase, adhering to the principles of green chemistry.

Explore fellows under the Wise program

On this page you can read more about the research being done by the WISE Fellows. In 2022, WISE initiated its inaugural WISE Fellow strategic faculty recruitment drive. Each of the six participating universities, alongside Luleå University of Technology, announced research profiles tailored to the recruitment of Assistant or Associate Professors. These recruitment packages included salaries for two postdoctoral researchers and two PhD students. By 2023, a total of twelve positions had been successfully filled at Stockholm University, Chalmers University of Technology, Luleå University of Technology, Lund University, and the Royal Institute of Technology
