1 - Develop novel non-target strategies to fingerprint small molecule DOM in the different matrices selected for study (sewage, wastewater effluent, river water and drinking water).
2 - Select and prioritize specific contaminants (excreted contaminants or metabolic products) to be used as human health biomarkers and investigate its correlation with the chemical profile obtained with HRMS.
3 - Holistically evaluate the effects of water treatment processes and natural buffers on water quality based on target and non-target analysis.
4 - Investigate changes on water sample fingerprints to predict treatment side effects such as formation of DBPs. Prediction of potential environmental and public health effects related to the emission and uses of the treated water.
