Elena Domínguez

Professor of Analytical Chemistry in the Department of Analytical Chemistry of the University of Alcala in Alcalá de Henares (Spain) since 2002.

Her professional activity has been developed in the Chemical Centre in Lund (Sweden), in the European Commission (DG Research, Brussels) and, mainly, in the University of Alcalá. There, she leads a group specialised on bioelectrochemistry and biosensors for the production of (bio)sensing systems for diagnostics, food control and environmental monitoring.

Other areas of her research interests include data mining for sample identification and, more recently, nanotechnology for biomimetics and sensing. She has published more than 80 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals. Most recent efforts have been focussed on technology transfer.

Presently and since 2009, she is President of the Spanish Society for Analytical Chemistry (SEQA).
