Development of a wastewater re-use exposure model based on produce consumption

Andrei Jarashneli studied for his B.Pharm. degree in Ben-Gurion University, Israel.

After completing his Bachelor studies, he has been working in a pharmaceutical lab, where he acquired analytical experience using HPLC, and performed complex pharmacological tests. He also participated in a research project aiming to develop a method of non-target analysis of organic pollutants in water. During his studies and work he developed a background in organic, analytical, pharmaceutical and environmental chemistries.

Andrei completed a M.Sc. degree in Water Science in Duisburg-Essen University in Germany.  During his M.Sc. studies, he investigated photodegradation of crude oil after its exposure to various environmental conditions using high-resolution mass spectrometry.  He performed his experiments in the Max-Planck Institute for Coal Research.

Starting February 2021, Andrei is accepted as a Ph.D. student in the Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He will participate in the ECORISK 2050 program studying the fate of the pharmaceuticals agroecosystems.
