Professor & Chair
Poznan University of Technology
Dr. Henryk Matusiewicz is professor of chemistry in the Department of Analytical Chemistry at Poznan University of Technology, Poland. He has published over 150 original publications in the area of trace element analytical chemistry, 10 authoritative reviews, 9 invited book chapters and co-edited one book. He has presented over 100 contributed or invited talks at national and international conferences and symposia on spectroscopy and analytical chemistry. He was a postdoctoral research associate at the Department of Chemistry, Colorado State University, USA (1975-1978) and in the Department of Chemistry, University of Massachusetts, USA (1982-1984), International Visiting Scientist at the Elemental Analysis Research Center, US Food and Drug Administration, Cincinnati, USA (1984-1985), Distinguished Visiting Scientist at the National Research Council of Canada, Institute for Environmental Chemistry, Ottawa, Canada (1988-1986, 2011; 3 months each year), Visiting Professor (DAAD) at the University of Hannover, the University of Dortmund and at Max-Planck-Institute für Metallforschung, Dortmund, Germany (1992) and Visiting Professor at the University of Oviedo, Spain (1997). Prof. Matusiewicz has served on the Editorial Advisory Boards of Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectrometry (1988-1997), Spectrochimica Acta Part B (1995-2000) and serves on the Editorial Advisory Boards of Microchemical Journal, Applied Spectroscopy Reviews, The Open Analytical Chemistry Journal and Austin Journal of Analytical & Pharmaceutical Chemistry. He is a member of the Committee of Analytical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences and Chairman of Trace Analysis Commision.
Development and application of novel analytical methodologies: modern methods of sample preparation, development of spectrochemical methods for the quantification of elements, application of analytical methods to problems of environmental, biological and clinical chemistry and inorganic trace and ultratrace analysis, including speciation analysis and fractionation are his main research interests.
