    Lorenzo Abad

    María Encarnación Lorenzo Abad is currently Full Professor in the Department of Analytical Chemistry at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. She received her degree in Chemistry in 1978 and her PhD degree in 1985 from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. She made a post-doctoral stage at the Department of Chemistry at Dublin City University. In 1990 she was visiting scientist (NATO Program) to the Depart- ment of Chemistry in Cornell University. In 1998 she was invited by the members of the faculty of Tokio University of Agriculture and Technology as visiting professor in the Department of Applied Chemistry. She is the author/coauthor of more than 100 original research publications and several book chapters in the area of analytical chemistry and has received the award of Madri+d Foundation.
