Young Analytical Scientists – M Carmen García-Poyo

Young Analytical Scientists


M. Carmen García-PoyoJAAS is excited to announce Miss M Carmen García-Poyo as one of our Young Analytical Scientists.

M. Carmen García-Poyo was born in Spain in 1988. She obtained her MSc degree on Environmental and Sustainable Chemistry at the University of Alicante (Spain) in 2012. Throughout that time, she conducted research into matrix effects in atomic spectrometry (FAAS, ICP-OES and ICP-MS) under the supervision of Dr Guillermo Grindlay. She later worked on the laboratory of a reproduction clinic for 4 years.

Since 2018, Miss García-Poyo has been carrying out her PhD under cotutelle between the Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour (France) and the Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain), supervised by Dr. Christophe Pecheyran and Dr. Martin Resano, in the framework of a European project (POCTEFA EFA176/16/DBS). The aim of her PhD is to further investigate the evolution of Wilson disease (a genetic disorder affecting copper metabolism) using microsamples. To achieve this, she is working in the determination of elemental and isotopic Cu using ICP-MS, MC-ICP-MS and HR-CS-GFAAS and various sampling strategies, including laser ablation, electrothermal vaporization (ETV) and direct microinjection.
