For the 2018 symposium we’ll have the privilege to welcome David Amouroux for an invited lecture entitled “Mercury stable isotopes in environmental sciences: from fundamental mechanisms to biogeochemical and ecological applications“.
David Amouroux is Research Director at CNRS/UPPA, appointed at IPREM Institute (CNRS-UPPA UMR 5254). He is co-responsible of the LCABIE research unit from 2016 to 2020. He is an environmental and analytical chemist, specifically interested in cycling and reactivity of contaminants in the environment. Some of his research lines include: i) transformations and transfer of mercury; selenium and other metal(loid)s at aquatic environments interfaces and ii) development of analytical and experimental methods using stable isotopes of trace elements to investigate biogeochemical mechanisms in the environment. He has authored and co-authored more than 150 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals and 10 book chapters in books, and has made over 300 communications in conferences, 35 of which upon invitation.
