Heidi Goenaga Infante
Heidi’s scientific career of over seventeenth years of experience on elemental and speciation analysis started with the award of a PhD from Oviedo University, Spain. She joined LGC as senior researcher in speciation analysis in 2003. Currently, she is Principal Scientist and Team Leader of the Inorganic Analysis team of fourteen PhDs and postgraduate scientists. Her group expertise currently lies in trace element speciation analysis, metallomics research, the characterisation of nanomaterials, high accuracy isotope ratio analysis, quantitative elemental bio-imaging 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 also a referee for numerous international peer reviewed journals; a member of the international advisory boards of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry and the RSC journal Metallomics and of the editorial board of the Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectrometry, and a member of IUPAC. She is the Government Chemist representative on the Nanomaterials Environment and Health Government Group chaired by DEFRA and a Science Fellow of LGC.
