This month we interview Selina Tisler from the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, about her work using supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) to detect very polar compounds and compounds of unknown toxicity in wastewater effluents, and her recent investigation into the migration of compounds from reusable plastic bottles into drinking water using a nontargeted screening approach.

Selina Tisler is an assistant professor in the Analytical Chemistry Group in the Department of Plant and Environmental Science at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. She received her PhD in environmental analytical chemistry in 2019 from the University of Tübingen in Germany. She was a postdoc at Aarhus and Copenhagen University in Denmark from 2019–2022. Her research focus lies in the advanced analysis of water, including nontarget screening of compounds of emerging concerns (CECs) and the identification of their transformation products in the aquatic environment. She has published 32 papers and book chapters, including 16 as first author. She has presented her work at more than 20 national and international scientific meetings, and she has been an invited speaker at more than 10 conferences.
