Talk Title: “Recent Advances in Targeted and Untargeted Metabolomics with Solid Phase Microextraction”
Dr. Ezel Boyacı studied chemistry at the Izmir Institute of Technology, Turkey, where she received her M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Analytical Chemistry in 2008 and 2012, respectively. In 2012 she became a postdoctoral fellow at University of Waterloo, Canada in Prof. Dr. Janusz Pawliszyn’s Research Group. In 2016 she became a research associate in the same university. Since September 2017 she is an associate professor at Department of Chemistry, Middle East Technical University, Turkey. Her research interests focused on clinical, pharmaceutical and environmental applications of various formats of solid phase microextraction (SPME), development of new extractive phases for SPME and metabolomics studies using SPME with complementary instrumental techniques such as LC-MS/MS, GC-MS, and LC-HRMS. She has a total of 42 articles in highly reputed journals, and she has a patent for development of SPME coatings. Dr. Boyaci is also active Committee Member of EuChemS-DAC Sample Preparation Study Group and Network, and Editorial Advisory Board of Advances in Sample Preparation.
