For two Municipalities in the Netherlands that struggle with the huge impact of atmospheric deposition of GenX and PFOA she’s the technical consultant. Tessa is the author of the study on the presence of PFAS in the Netherlands in water and soil, liaison officer for the RIVM (National Institute on Health and Environment) concerning toxicity of PFAS and the relative toxicity of other PFAS than PFOS and PFOA.
