Zoyne Pedrero Zayas

Zoyne PEDRERO ZAYAS is a research scientist at CNRS, specifically at IPREM, Pau, France. She obtained her PhD in Analytical Chemistry at Complutense University of Madrid, Spain. Her research activity is principally related to the use of natural isotopic fractionation and the development of analytical strategies by using MC-ICP-MS, as a tool for the understanding of biogeochemical processes (metal/loids). She is principally interested in Hg (and Se) analysis in biota and has published in different research areas: as (bio)analytical chemistry and environmental sciences. She coordinates several national and international projects in that domain including a European H2020-MSCA-RISE project. She currently leads an international (EU, Mauritius and Brazil) network of experts from cross-sectorial research areas (fish nutrition, analytical chemistry, environmental science, communication, toxicology & aquaculture) at industry and academia, with a long-term goal of furthering the understanding of the source, transport, fate and effects of Hg from fish to humans and the detoxification role of Se.
