My research interests lie in the field of emerging contaminants e.g. nanomaterials (NMs) and their toxicity. Even though people aren't very aware of the NMs they use, it has become an indispensable part of our everyday life. This unveils the need for understanding the potentially harmful effects that these materials may have to human and the environment. In my presentation, I will talk about; Are NMs on the market? How might they affect us and the environment? What has been done to prevent their adverse effects?
