Congratulations to Laura for passing here VIVA. “Our Lara has now graduated with a PhD from Stockholm University 17 May 2019. Lara worked on mass balance approaches for organofluorines and especially PFAS (PI Jon Benskin) and was co-supervised by TESLA. Congratulations Lara!”





Congratulation to Ken. He passed his PhD viva in April.









10th Scottish Symposium on Environmental Analytical Chemistry in Glasgow (University of Glasgow, Wolfson Medical Building), 12 December2018 TESLA participation:

Oral Presentation: Toon, Da, Ken, Daniel Poster Presentation: Sa'a, Nan, Martin Participation without presentation: Ahmed, Camilla, Xueying Attached is also a group photo that we took at the end of the symposium.

Among them Martin Mueller, who won the poster price for his work on sulphur compounds in garlic, onions and shallots. Congratulations




Congratulation to Laili, who past her PhD VIVA in September, to Johannes who passed in November and Toon who passed recently in December
