- Name: Philipp Spörl
- Arbeitsgruppe/-ort: Isotopenanalytik
- Position: Guest Researcher
I am currently writing my dissertation in the field of vegetation technology at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna at the Institute of Soil Bioengineering and Landscape Construction within the joint FWF project TecEUS (Technology-Critical Elements in Urban Spheres). My personal research focus is on facade greening and how plants can contribute to particulate matter reduction.
In the course of the project, different leaf samples from various facades in Vienna are taken and analyzed. In order to get to know the process of chemical analysis, I will be a guest scientist at the Montanuniversity Leoben in September. My tasks include sample preparation, microwave digestion of the leaf samples, as well as substrate analysis and filter sampling.
