Curriculum Vitae He graduated from the Faculty of Mathematics-Physics-Chemistry of the Maria Curie Sklodowska University in Lublin. In 1986 he has received PhD degree at the Faculty of Chemical Technology, Slovak Technical University in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia. In 1992 he has reached the Doctor of Sciences (habilitation) degree. In 1994 he has received Nicolaus Copernicus University professor position and in 1999 received the title of professor of chemistry. After MSc graduation he became an assistant in the Department of Physical Chemistry, M. Curie Sk?odowska University in Lublin. Then he worked in the Department of Chemical Physics and Physic Chemical Separation Methods until 1994. From 1994 he began to organize his research group at the Faculty of Chemistry, Nicolaus Copernicus University and became the Head of the Department of Environmental Chemistry & Ecoanalytics, later on transformed into Chair of Environmental Chemistry & Bioanalytics. Until now he takes over this function. He has been Humboldt Fellow at Tübingen University (Germany) and visiting professor at several universities in the USA, Japan, China, UK, South Africa, Austria, the Netherlands, Taiwan and in many others European countries as well. He serves as a member of the Committee of Analytical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences and as member of the editorial boards of 25 national and international journals and has authored or co-authored 15 books, numerous patents (most of them has been already implemented), lectures and more than 250 scientific papers (ca. 30). He is one of the most citied chemist in Poland (over 3.000 citations). He was awarded by numerous national and international organizations (including Doctor Honoris Causa) and supervised 24 PhD and DSc thesis. Prof. Buszewski is also the chairman of the Central European Group for Separation Sciences (CEGSS), the president-elect of Polish Chemical Society (2010-2012), the president of the Societas Humboldtiana Polonorum, member of steering committee of Division of Environmental Chemistry of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS). In October 2007 was awarded by the Foundation for Polish Science (FNP) of prestige award Master (Mistrz) and in 2009 was awarded of the Polish Prime Minister award. In 2009 was elected to the board of European Society for Separation Science (EuSSS) (tenure 2009-2014) and how he is a president. Main scientific interests: environmental analysis, chromatography and related techniques (HPLC, SPE, GC, CZE, adsorption, sample preparation), spectroscopy, utilization of waste and sludge, and chemometrics.

• Theory and practice in chromatography and related techniques. Miniaturization. Methods of synthesis and characterization of a new type of column packings, chemical surface modification, stationary phases, gas chromatography (GC), high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), zone capillary electrophoresis (CZE), methods of samples preparation, e.g. by isolation and preconcentration from different biological matrices (adsorption-desorption, extraction: liquid-liquid, liquid-solid, in supercritical state, microwave technique, filtration, membrane preconcentration).

• Analytics and monitoring of environment (chemical and biological), qualitative and quantitative determination of organic and non-organic xenobiotics in different matrices. Technique of early cancer diagnosis. Bioaccumulation and speciation. Analytics of food products, pharmaceutical, medical-clinical, biochemical, proteomics and metabolomics with using of modern instrumental techniques in stable and field conditions: GC, GC/MS, HS-TD-GC, P&T-GC, TLC, HPLC, LC-MS/MS, ITP, 2D CE, CZE, CEC, CZE-MS, TOC, TS, AAS, NMR.
