Later, she joined the Food and Feed Unit of the Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements, Joint Research Centre (European Commission) until October 2003. During this period (1997–2003), Dr. Turiel got wide experience on developing analytical methods for the analysis of organic compounds (pesticides and antibiotics) in environmental and food samples, using various sample preparation procedures (SPE, MIPS, US, MW) and different separation techniques (HPLC, CE, MEKC) coupled to different detectors (DAD, FL, MS, MS-MS). In 2004, she started working at the National Institute of Research and Technology in agricultural and food science in Madrid (Spain) as a contracted Researcher to finally become a Senior Researcher at the same institute in November 2006. In these years, and up to date, Dr. Turiel has focused her career toward new synthesis procedures and MIP formats to provide efficient analytical tools for selective sample preparation in the analysis of toxic and/or endocrine disrupters compound in food and environmental samples.
