Lester W. Strock Award


The Lester W. Strock Award is given by the New England Section of the Society of Applied Spectroscopy in recognition of a selected publication of substantive research in/or application of analytical atomic spectrochemistry in the fields of earth science, life sciences, or stellar and cosmic sciences. More details on the award are available from the Society for Applied Spectroscopy.


2020 Recipient

Heidi’s scientific career of over twenty years of experience on elemental and speciation analysis started with the award of a PhD from Oviedo University, Spain. She joined LGC as senior researcher in speciation analysis in 2003.

Currently, she is a Science Fellow of LGC and the Chief Scientist for the National Measurement Laboratory at LGC. She is also the Principal Scientist and Team of the Inorganic Analysis team of fourteen PhDs and postgraduate scientists. Her group expertise currently lies in trace element speciation analysis, metallomics research, the characterisation of nanomaterials, high accuracy isotope ratio analysis, quantitative elemental bio-imaging and the characterisation of “speciated” reference materials and standards.

Heidi Goenaga-Infante is the UK representative at the Inorganic Analysis Working Group of the CCQM, the international Consultative Committee for Metrology in Chemistry. She is chair of the Editorial Board of the RSC Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectrometry and, a member of the International Advisory Boards of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry and the RSC journal Metallomics. She is the Government Chemist representative on the Nanomaterials Environment and Health Government Group chaired by DEFRA and the LGC representative at ISO TC 24 (Particle characterisation). She is the EURAMET representative for inorganic analysis at the CCQM Key Comparison Working Group and a member of IUPAC. She has acted as the coordinator of the EU Metrology Research Proposal (EMRP) NanoChop “Chemical, Optical and Biological characterisation of nanomaterials in biological samples”. 

She is the leading author of over a 110 scientific research papers and 6 book chapters. Heidi was recently awarded the 2020 Lester W. Strock Award from SAS.
