Andrea Vojs Staňová

Andrea Vojs Staňová, born in 1981, has a permanent position at Faculty of Natural Sciences, Comenius University in Bratislava, Slovakia, performing research and pedagogical activities as an Assoc. professor.

She graduated M.Sc. level in Analytical Chemistry, at Faculty of Natural Sciences in 2005. Degree RNDr. (Rerum Naturalium Doctor) examination and thesis defense she successfully finished in 2006. The work on PhD thesis she started under supervision of Assoc. Prof. RNDr. Jozef Marák, PhD. and Phd. Thesis: „Combinations of Capillary Electrophoresis Techniques with Mass Spectrometry“ she successfully defended in 2011. Since 2014, she has been a head of Mass spectrometry laboratory. From 2017 to 2019, she was PostDoc in group of Roman Grabic (Laboratory of Environmental Chemistry and Biochemistry, Faculty of Fisheries and Protection of Waters, University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice).

Her scientific and pedagogic career has from the beginning been focused on basic research and methodology of analytical chemistry in the field of electroseparation methods as-well-as combinations of separation methods with mass spectrometry. Her research interests include: development of methods based on combination of liquid chromatography with low and high resolution mass spectrometry for identification and quantification of compounds present in complex biological and environmental samples, sample pretreatment techniques and identification of degradation and transformation products by high-resolution mass spectrometry.

She was the principal investigator and co-investigator in research projects: five projects of Slovak Grant Agency, VEGA (once as principal investigator), six projects of Slovak Research and Development Agency, APVV (three as principal investigator for FNS, CU) and one project of Czech Science Foundation, Grant projects of excellence in basic research EXPRO (GX20-04676X). Within the frame of international projects (e.g. CEEPUS) she has scientifically profited from several foreign internships and stays. She is active supervisor of bachelor, master and PhD. students.  

She has presented 3 invited lectures and more than 110 contributions at international and domestic conferences. She published 46 peer reviewed international papers (including Analytica Chimica Acta, Talanta, Journal of Chromatoography A, Electrophoresis, etc). Her papers are cited more than 500 times and h index = 13.

She is a member of Slovak Chemical Society. She received Shimadzu award in 2009 and award of dean of the Faculty of Natural Sciences, Comenius University in Bratislava for research team (2015) for research into solutions to the most challenging problems of separation, identification and determination of biological, medical and environmental relevant substances in complex samples
