Her research focuses on the potential effects of different chemicals compounds in surface water on aquatic organisms and human health. Her current project is investigating the effects of human pharmaceutical compounds detected in African aquatic environments on fish health. Different biomarkers are used to investigate the health of fish exposed to pollutants in water from the molecular to the organism level. The project is also studying innovated techniques of removing antiretrovirals from waste water. Marie Clémentine is also involved in community engagement initiatives, she herself has started a community engagement project which aims to conduct awareness campaigns in South African educational institutions (high schools and universities) on the safe disposal of expired and unused medicines.
