Research interests

John Wilkinson is a Postdoctoral Researcher in th Department of Environment and Geography and is currently working on several projects including the European iPiE project on the intelligent assessment of pharmaceuticals in the environment. The iPiE project aims to develop a framework that will provide methodologies to prioritise new and existing medicinal compounds for a comprehensive environmental risk assessment. As such it will support and inform regulatory activities designed to assess and reduce the environmental impact of active pharmaceutical ingredients.

John is also managing the Global Monitoring of Pharmaceuticals project which involves a consortium of over 50 acadenic and governmental partners developing a global database of pharmaceutical contamination in the environment.

Before joining the University of York, John completed his PhD at Kingston University in London investigating the occurrence, bioaccumulation, fate and distribution of pharmaceuticals, plasticisers, illicit drugs and perfluorinated compounds in the aquatic environment. John has also spent time investigating emerging eco-human health issues of endocrine disrupting chemicals at the University of Colorado at Denver, USA.

John has presented his research at a number of international conferences and is an active member of several professional bodies including the Royal Society of Chemistry, American Society of Toxicology, and the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry.
