Caroline Linhart

My interdisciplinary research focuses on conducting environmental exposure studies that provide tools to advance  scientific knowledge and improve public health and environmental policy. My expertise has evolved from ecology and its fieldwork to statistics, programming, epidemiology and finally toxicology to gain a comprehensive understanding of the biological mechanisms and risks associated with various human and environmental exposures.
Most of my projects focus on the previously unrecognised consequences of environmental pollution. The aim of my work is to identify and characterise environmental contaminants whose fate is still poorly understood, but whose presence is potentially harmful to human health and the biosphere.
Disciplines: Ecology, limnology, statistics, epidemiology, environmental epidemiology, environmental sciences, toxicology, public health, bioinformatics, endocrinology, chemical risk assessment. 
Expertise: Biostatistics, multivariate statistics, mixed effects modelling, data analysis, environmental health, pollution, endocrine disruption, biochemistry, chemical risk assessment, estrogens, molecular biology, microscopy, macrozoobenthos and algal taxonomy, water chemistry.
