Heidi’s scientific career of over fifteen years’ experience on elemental and speciation analysis started with the award of a PhD from Oviedo University, Spain. She joined LGC as a senior researcher in speciation analysis in 2003. Currently, she is Principal Scientist and Team Leader of the Inorganic Analysis team within the S&T Division. Her key expertise lies in trace element speciation analysis, metallomics research, combined use of elemental and molecular mass spectrometry, size-based element fractionation and the characterisation of “speciated” reference materials and standards. Heidi Goenaga Infante is the UK representative at the Inorganic Analysis Working Group of the CCQM, the international Consultative Committee for Metrology in Chemistry. She is the project coordinator for the EU EMRP NEW03 project on “Chemical and Optical Characterisation of Nanomaterials in Biological Samples” and lead proposer for a number of EU and UK-funded technology innovation projects. She is also a referee for numerous international peer reviewed journals, a member of the international advisory boards of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry and Metallomics, a member of the editorial board of JAAS and, a member of IUPAC.
