Marja Lamoree is a senior environmental analytical chemist with over 15 years of experience. In the course of the years, she has been involved in field and experimental studies in the research area of environmental chemistry, analytical method development, Effect-Directed Analysis and environmental metabolomics. The work was carried out within the scope of contract research for government and industry as well as various European Framework projects. Her expertise lies in the combination of up-to-date analytical-chemical and toxicological techniques and their application in an iterative mode in order to identify novel and "unknown" substances, to contribute to the evaluation of their biological relevance and estimation of their total toxic potency. In addition, she worked on the development of target analytical methods for the determination of emerging pollutants at very low concentrations in matrices such as water, sediment, fish but also human matrices such as breast milk and cord blood in cohort studies. She was the co-promotor of 4 PhD students and is currently supervising another 4 PhD students. In addition, she teaches theoretical and practical courses in the field of environmental chemistry and toxicology, gives guest lectures on water quality and supervises BSc and MSc level students on a regular basis.
