Coordinators of the Master's in Applied Chromatographic Techniques.
Antoni Roig (UJI)
Dr. Antoni Francesc Roig i Navarro. Professor of Analytical Chemistry in the Department of Physical and Analytical Chemistry at the Universitat Jaume I.
The main lines of research focus on the application of chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry in the fields of the environment and clinical analysis. The research focuses on the determination of both organic pollutants and metal species. Isotopic dilution mass spectrometry together with the methodology for quantifying the deconvolution of isotopic profiles are the most relevant developments in both lines of research.
He is the author of more than 50 articles in his field, all published in journals indexed in the JCR. He has been a principal investigator in 5 research projects and has participated in another 17. He has directed four doctoral theses in the field of analytical chemistry and the environment.
His teaching career includes first and second cycle teaching and a degree in Chemistry, a doctorate and an interuniversity master's degree in Applied Chromatographic Techniques.
With regard to university management, it is worth highlighting his work as coordinator of the first year of the Degree in Chemistry at the UJI during the period 01/01/2010 - 31/08/2014, coordinator of the "Project for the adaptation of the Degree in chemistry in the process of European convergence ". Universitat Jaume I during the years 2005 to 2009 and coordinator of the Doctoral Program, "Chemistry, Physics and Applied Sciences" of the Department of CC. EXP of the Universitat Jaume I. 2004-2007.
Rosa Maria Marcè (URV)
She has a PhD in Chemical Sciences from the University of Barcelona, and is currently Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the Faculty of Chemistry and Distinguished Professor at Rovira i Virgili University. His research activity focuses on the development and application of new analytical methods for the determination of organic pollutants in environmental samples (water, sediment, sewage sludge, air, etc.). In particular, his research focuses both on the improvement of sample treatment techniques, with the development of new materials for extraction techniques, and on the improvement of chromatographic determination coupled to mass spectrometry, using state-of-the-art instruments. His research results have been translated into more than 250 scientific articles, 12 book chapters and numerous conference papers. His h index is 64. He has participated in more than 25 competitive projects (being a principal investigator in 9 of them) and a large number of technology transfer projects.
He has taught in the areas of analytical chemistry and environmental analysis in both undergraduate (Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Oenology) and master's degree (Applied Chromatographic Techniques, Chemistry in Industry, Environmental Law) studies and has directed more than 23 doctoral theses in these same fields. She has been the coordinator of the Master's in Applied Chromatographic Techniques since 2006.
Manuela Hidalgo (UdG)
She is a university professor in the Analytical Chemistry area at the University of Girona. She has a degree and a doctorate in Chemical Sciences from the Autonomous University of Barcelona. She has done pre-doctoral stays at the University of California at Berkeley and Masaryk University (Brno, Czech Republic), and post-doctoral stays at the ETH, Zürich. His research activity has been developed within different lines of research that, in general, currently focuses on the development of analytical methodologies for the determination of inorganic and organic species, and also for the determination of volatile compounds in different matrices ( water, food, etc.) More specifically, an important part of these studies focus on sample treatment techniques, applied in combination with different instrumental, spectroscopic and chromatographic techniques: ICP-MS, MP-AES, GC-MS. Her interests include the development of new devices based on polymeric membranes for speciation studies of different elements in the environment and for the pre-concentration of pollutants. She is responsible for different transfer contracts related to the presence of olfactory defects in cork. Currently her h index is 25.
She has participated in more than 20 competitive research projects. She is the author of more than 90 scientific articles and has participated in numerous congresses. Regarding her teaching activity, she has directed 7 doctoral theses. She currently teaches Chemistry and Biotechnology degrees at the University of Girona. She also participates in the teaching of the Interuniversity Master's Degree in Applied Chromatographic Techniques, of which she is the coordinator at the University of Girona.
