Topic Leader "Comprehensive Cromatographic Separation"


Thomas Gröger joined the Helmholtz Zentrum Munich (former GSF) in 2004 as technician at the former institute for ecological chemistry (IOEC) and is now topic leader at the cooperation group complex molecular analytics (CMA).

His focus and interest are the supervision and evaluation of scientific work in the field of environmental health and analytical method development. He is developing analytical methods and instrumentation (mass spectrometry & chromatography) for process monitoring and comprehensive off-line analysis. A main interest is the adaption and translation of new and state-of-the art analytical instrumentation for their application in aerosol and health and other areas of environmental health
