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.

Young Analytical Scientists – Simone Braeuer

Young Analytical Scientists


Simone Braeuer

JAAS is excited to announce Simone Braeuer as one of our Young Analytical Scientists.

Simone Braeuer obtained her PhD in 2018 from the University of Graz (Austria) in the research group of Professor Walter Goessler. The following year, she started a PostDoc fellowship at Ghent University (Belgium) in the Atomic & Mass Spectrometry research group of Professor Frank Vanhaecke.

Her work at the University of Graz focused on the development and application of ICPMS and HPLC-ICPMS methods for the determination of trace element species in environmental context. During her PhD, her researched focussed mainly on arsenic in mushrooms. Since mushrooms also contain other elements, sometimes in surprising concentrations and species, she soon became interested in these as well. Her fascination with ICPMS and mushrooms grew so big that she is still investigating mushrooms in her current PostDoc project, now via multi-collector ICPMS and laser ablation ICPMS.

Dr Braeuer considers multidisciplinary and international collaborations both fascinating and essential for environmental research. She also believes that high-quality, state-of-the-art analytical chemistry is of key importance – for environmental studies as well as in the rest of life.

Read Dr Braeuer’s paper, Determination of the naturally occurring vanadium-complex amavadin in Amanita muscaria with HPLC-ICPMS.

Young Analytical Scientists – Jefferson Santos de Gois

Young Analytical Scientists


Jefferson Santos de GoisJAAS is excited to introduce Jefferson Santos de Gois as one of our Young Analytical Scientists.

Jefferson Santos de Gois currently lives in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and works at Rio de Janeiro State University (UERJ), where he holds a permanent position as a professor. He obtained his doctorate in Chemistry (2016) from the Ghent University (Belgium) and Federal University of Santa Catarina, UFSC (Brazil) performing research in atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS), high-resolution continuum source atomic absorption spectrometry (HR-CS AAS), inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and isotopic analysis via multi-collector ICP-MS. His thesis focused on the development of methods for halogen determination and isotopic analysis, as well as the application of the methods in environmental studies.

After receiving his PhD, he accepted a position at UERJ, where he expanded his research interests to the determination of organic compounds (by chromatographic techniques) and chemometrics (design of experiments, pattern recognition, and multivariate calibration). He currently coordinates the research group “Espectrometria atômica, Molecular e Métodos de Separação”, advising doctorate and master and undergraduate students from the Graduate Program in Chemical Engineering at UERJ.

His current research projects involve the application of nanomaterials for method development and removal of pollutants from the environment, the development of analytical methods for trace-element and organic compounds determination, sample preparation methods, the development of chemometric methods for multivariate calibration and classification, as well as the design of experiments.
