Research group: Water, Environmental and Food Chemistry (ENFOCHEM)
Dr. Sandra Pérez Solsona, Scientific researcher at the Department of Environmental Chemistry at Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research IDÆA-CSIC in Barcelona (Spain). Postdoctoral researcher at State University of New York at Buffalo (2003-2005). Her work is focused on the study of occurrence, distribution, and degradation of pollutants in the aquatic and terrestrial environment. Application of advanced mass spectrometry techniques including hybrid techniques UPLC-QToF-MS and UPLC-QExactive-MS for the structural elucidation of novel transformation products and metabolites of organic pollutants LC-QqQ-MS and LC-QLIT-MS are employed for the sensitive trace determination of parent compounds and their TPs in the water cycle. Recently, she has expanded her research scope to the field of environmental fate and degradation of synthetic polymers. Her research group has experience in participating and coordinating national and international research projects funded by the European Commission, and the Spanish Government. In addition, she has contracts with public and private entities.
