Department of Pharmaceutical Technology and Chemistry, Universidad de Navarra, 31008 Pamplona, Spain
Interests: My main interests are related to the development and validation of new analytical methods for determining the presence of toxins, contaminants, drugs and other analytes of concern in foods, biological matrixes and pharmaceutical formulations. I usually employ Chromatography techniques (GC, HPLC, UPLC) coupled with fluorescence, UV or MS spectrometer detectors. Also, I apply these methods to the analysis of the aforementioned analytes in samples. More specifically, the objective of my research work addresses the study of the presence of mycotoxins in different raw materials, food and biological matrixes. Mycotoxins are toxic compounds produced by fungi that contaminate food and raw materials which can reach humans or animals and affect their health. It is necessary to develop and validate analytical methods for the study of these toxins in a sufficient number of samples and to study those factors that may influence the exposure of humans and animals to them.
