Researcher biography

Tobias got his Bachelor in analytical chemistry from the HZ University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands. His thesis focused on applications development for a portable mass spectrometer. He then went on to pursue a Master’s in analytical chemistry at the University of Amsterdam. His thesis there was focused on the use of chemometrics in analytical chemistry, computational mass spectrometry and on the better understanding of the number of chemicals of emerging concern that have been analysed so far in the environment. In 2024 he started his PhD at the University of Queensland with QAEHS within the HyTECH (Hyphenated analytical Separation Technologies) project. He is working on developing methods for the non-targeted high-resolution mass spectrometric characterization of highly mobile and highly persistent contaminants.
