About Philipp Wanner

I am a contaminant hydrogeologist and interested in the investigation of the behavior of emerging contaminants in groundwater systems and to develop remediation strategies for contaminated sites. My research includes the development of methods to detect contaminant transformation processes in groundwater, especially methods based on compound-specific stable isotope analysis (CSIA).

Currently, I have two running research projects, which are funded by the Swedish Research Council (VR) and FORMAS, respectively:

VR Project: Plastic and pesticides in agricultural soils – A hazardous combination for groundwater systems and drinking water supplies worldwide? (2022 - 2025)

The goal of this project is to determine the migration of plastic particles through agricultural soils and whether plastic particles in agricultural soils enhance pesticide transport into underlying groundwater systems and drinking water supplies.

FORMAS Project: Artificial groundwater recharge – A shortcut for harmful poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) into groundwater systems and drinking water supplies – Can we avoid this? (2022 - 2025)

In this project, we aim to determine the input of harmful poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) into groundwater systems and drinking water supplies caused by artificial groundwater recharge and to identify possible prevention options.

At the Department of Earth Science, I teach two courses including Hydrology and Hydrogeology (GV2002) on the Bachelor level and Applied Hydrogeology (GVG460) on the Masters level.
