Gauthier Eppe was born in Liège, Belgium, in 1972. He received the chemistry engineering degree and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Liège (ULg), Liège, Belgium, in 1996 and 2007, respectively. Since 1996, Eppe has been a Research Fellow at the Mass Spectrometry Laboratory of ULg. He began with the development of quantitative methods for the measurement of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in complex biological matrices using gas chromatography-high-resolution mass spectrometry (GC-HRMS) and gas chromatography-ion trap tandem mass spectrometry (GC-MS/MS). His interests were focused on QA/QC procedures and validation of analytical methods based on chemometrics approaches. Since 1999, he has been the Technical Manager of the Centre of Analytical Research and Technology (CART), an interfaculty analytical centre of ULg. In 2004, he was a recipient of the student award of the Technical Division on Reference Materials of AOAC International (Gaithersburg, USA). In 2008, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Analytical Chemistry Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST, Gaithersburg, USA). Currently, he is a Professor in inorganic analytical and environmental chemistry. He is mainly interested in hyphenated techniques in chromatography and multidimensional approaches, in metal speciation using mass spectrometry, and in the development of reference materials. He is a Member of the Editorial Review Board of Environnement, Risques et Santé (Paris, France), and a Member of the European National Reference Laboratories network for dioxins and PCBs in food and in feed.
