Heidi’s scientific career of over seventeenth years experience on elemental and speciation analysis started with the award of a PhD from Oviedo University, Spain. She joined LGC as senior researcher in speciation analysis in 2003. Currently, she is  Principal Scientist and Team Leader of the Inorganic Analysis team with 12 researchers within the Science And Innovation Division. Her key expertise lies in trace element speciation analysis, metallomics research, size-based element fractionation and the characterisation of “speciated” reference materials and standards. Heidi Goenaga Infante is the UK representative at the Inorganic Analysis Working Group of the CCQM,  the international Consultative Committee for Metrology in Chemistry. She is also a referee for numerous international peer reviewed journals, a member of the advisory boards of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry and Metallomics, and a member of the editorial board of JAAS. Heidi is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and recently, she has been appointed Science Fellow of LGC.

She has acted as the coordinator of the EU EUROPEAN Metrology Research Proposal (EMRP) NanoChop “Chemical, Optical and Biological characterisation of nanomaterials in biological samples”.
