Gábor Galbács is a full professor at the University of Szeged (Hungary). This is the university from where he received his diplomas in chemistry and physics (1992), environmental science (1995), as well as PhD and CSc degrees in analytical chemistry in 1998. He holds the Doctor of Science (DSc) title of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences since 2013. Beginning from 2014, he is the Head of the Department of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry at the Chemistry Institute of the University of Szeged.
His research group is active in the fields of fundamental and applied laser- and plasma-based analytical spectroscopy, mainly performing instrumentation and method development for laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy, inductively coupled plasma optical emission and mass spectrometry, spark plasma discharges and optochemical sensors. Lately the fabrication, characterization and analytical use of micro- and nanostructures has also been incorporated in the profile of the group. Over the years he has performed research in several foreign institutions like the Institute for Nuclear Sciences at the University of Ghent, (Ghent, Belgium), Department of Chemistry at the University of Florida (Gainesville, USA) and the Department of Physics at the University of Umeå (Umeå, Sweden).
