My work focuses on analytical chemistry with the development of methods for the analysis of organic micropollutants. I am also interested in passive sampling techniques to characterise the exposure of aquatic organisms (microalgae, biofilms).
In addition, I am carrying out analytical developments in the field of lipidomics to propose biomarkers of toxic effects in aquatic plants and marine or freshwater fish.
E. Pinilla-Gil is a professor in Analytical Chemistry at the University of Extremadura in Badajoz, Spain (department of Analytical Chemistry). He received his B.Sc. in Chemistry (1987) at the University of Extremadura, and a Ph.D. in Chemistry (1991) at the same university. The main topic of his research work is the development of analytical methods for the determination of pollutants in environmental samples, with a special focus on miniaturization and portability of electroanalytical instruments for pollution monitoring. He is also interested in novel environmental sampling techniques, sample pretreatment techniques, and pollution impact assessment.
I have over a decade of experience leading independent laboratory research projects as a research chemist at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The focus of my work is using in silico (computational tools, especially QSAR) and in vitro (cellular and biochemical) methods for identifying chemical hazards associated with foods and dietary supplements.
Pawel L. Urban received his MSc degree in biology from the University of Warsaw in 2002, and PhD degree in chemistry from the University of York in 2008. He conducted research stays in the University of Alcala, University of Warsaw, and ETH Zurich. The Urban’s laboratory was initially located in the National Chiao Tung University; then moved to the National Tsing Hua University. The team focuses on the development of enabling technologies for chemistry research and clinical analysis, their applications, as well as fundamental studies.
