Group of Chemometrics and Environmetrics

Group Members:
Prof. Stefan Tsakovski
Prof. V. Simeonov
Assist. Prof. Miroslava Nedyalkova
Assist. Prof. Tsvetomil Voyslavov
PhD student: 1

The research work of the group is focused mainly on environmental and health risk assessment and includes: epidemiolocal data mining concerning environmental health issues, pollution assessment of different environments concerning traditional and new emerging chemicals by approaches of environmetrics; ecotoxicity modeling studies of relationships between different ecotoxicty tests and environmental pollutants behavior and fate, as well as molecular properties in gaseous phase and solutions.


Prof. Vasil Simeonov – International Award “Fritz Feigl” of the Austrian Chemical Society and Prof. Stefan Tsakovski – for the best young scientist of University of Sofia.
