biography

Dr. Chiara Cavaliere is Associate Professor in Analytical Chemistry at University of Rome “La Sapienza” since September 2015. In 2008, she was one of the winner of a 3 year Fellowship funded by King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (Jeddah, Saudi Arabia). She graduated in Chemistry in 2002 at “La Sapienza” and then she spent a period (January-December 2003)in the Analytical Chemistry Department of Stockholm University with a fellowship from her University. In 2007, she disserted her PhD thesis in analytical chemistry at “La Sapienza” University. Since 2004, she has worked in Chemistry Department with collaboration contracts and research fellowships. She has more than 70 publications in international scientific journals with impact factor.

 

Area of Interest

Her research interests are focussed on the development of innovative analytical methods, based on liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry, for determining substances present in various matrices, such as food, water, animal and plant tissues. In particular, she has dealt with water pollutant determination, mycotoxin analysis in foods, characterization of different polyphenol classes in plants, protein quantification, protein expression profiling and peptidomics.
