Margaretha de Loos-Vollebregt
Margaretha de Loos-Vollebregt obtained her PhD in 1980 from Delft University of Technology, Netherlands, Department of Analytical Chemistry. The title of the thesis was ‘Zeeman atomic absorption spectroscopy’ with supervisor Prof. Dr. Leo de Galan. From 1968 until 2014 she worked as analytical chemist at the Delft University of Technology in various positions (including associate professor). Since 2009 she is guest professor in Atomic Spectroscopy at Ghent University, Belgium. She has published about 80 papers in international journals (H index 24) and several book chapters. She presented lectures at numerous international conferences and was member of scientific committees for e.g. CSI, ESAS, FACSS and Rio Conferences. From 1992 until 1997 she was member of the editorial advisory board of Spectrochimica Acta Part B: Atomic Spectroscopy. From 1997 until 2001 she was reviews editor for Spectrochimica Acta Part B: Atomic Spectroscopy and since 2001 she is editor of Spectrochimica Acta Part B: Atomic Spectroscopy. From 1991 until 2016 she was a member of the advisory board of Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectrometry. Since 2006 she is member of the editorial advisory board of Analytica Chimica Acta. She is member of the Royal Dutch Chemical Society (KNCV) and member of the Analytical Chemistry division (KNCV) where she is leading the Dutch working group for atomic spectroscopy. Her scientific interests are in atomic absorption, atomic emission and inorganic mass spectrometry, including instrumental developments, signal processing and sample introduction.
