Prof. Dr. Ivo Leito

Ivo Leito works as professor of analytical chemistry at Institute of Chemistry, University of Tartu. His main research directions are on the borderline of analytical chemistry with other disciplines: chemistry of superacids and superbases; metrology in chemistry (MiC); liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry; sensors; instrumental methods in the analysis of historical objects. He is a passionate educator, teaches analytical chemistry and its metrological aspects at UT and has initiated several international analytical chemistry educational activities (MSC, EACH) and on-line courses (Measurement uncertainty, Method validation).

Dr. Bertil Magnusson

Bertil started as a marine chemist looking for traces of metals in the Oceans in the 70’s. After his PhD he joined a chemical company, AKZO-NOBEL, and worked there as a specialist in analytical chemistry mainly with spectroscopy (XRF, XRD, ICP) and wet chemistry.

In 2002 Bertil joined SP, now RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden), and worked with analysis and quality in measurements including accreditation, quality control, validation, measurement uncertainty and decision making. A major part is teaching and taking part in writing guidelines from e.g. Eurachem, Nordtest and Eurolab. In 2016 he started a small company supporting labs with mainly inorganic analysis and quality in measurement, Trollboken AB.

Prof. Dr. Juliane Hollender

Prof. Dr. Juliane Hollender is the head of the department Environmental Chemistry at the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag) as well as adjunct professor at the ETH Zurich.

She holds a PhD in environmental engineering from the Technical University of Berlin and worked for 10 years at the RWTH Aachen in Germany before she moved to Switzerland in 2005. Her research concentrates on the fate of organic micropollutants in the natural and engineered aquatic environment. She is especially interested in biological transformation of contaminants in the environment, bioaccumulation in aquatic organisms as well as non-target analysis using high resolution mass spectrometry to get a more comprehensive picture of the contamination of aquatic systems. She is a member of scientific research groups and committees including the research council of the Swiss National Science Foundation and the NORMAN network.

Dr. Anneli Kruve

Anneli Kruve graduated from the University of Tartu in 2011 and continued her academic carrier in academia. Currently, she is a Humboldt fellow in Freie Universität Berlin and is supervising students in the University of Tartu. Her field of studies is focussed on mass spectrometry fundamentals and applications. Specifically, her group is working on establishing semi-quantitative non-targeted screening as well as on measurement science issues both in targeted as well as non-targeted methods. In 2018 she was selected to the Top 40 under 40 power list by the Analytical Scientist.
