Giulia Poma

Position:Postdoctoral researcher

Partner institute: University of Antwerp (UAntwerpen)


Expertise: I completed my Ph.D. in Environmental Science at the Water Research Institute of the Italian National Research Council (IRSA-CNR) in March 2014, regarding the evaluation of bioaccumulation processes of brominated flame retardants in biotic matrices. Now, I am a researcher (> 8-year post-doc experience at the Toxicological Centre of the University of Antwerp) specialized in the assessment of chemical safety of food and edible insects and of human exposure (dietary intake and dust ingestion/inhalation) to emerging chemicals, including flame retardants and plasticizers. I am also the research manager of the Exposome Centre of Excellence at the University of Antwerp (https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/research-groups/exposome/).
