José Bernal is a Permanent Professor in the Department of Analytical Chemistry at University of Valladolid (Spain). He received a B.S. degree in chemistry from the University of Valladolid (Spain) and a doctoral degree in analytical chemistry at the University of Valladolid (Spain). Upon graduation (January 2008), Dr. Bernal held a Postdoc position at the Institute of Industrial Fermentations of the Spanish Research Council (CSIC); then he was working for 8 months (June 2009-January 2010) at the Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry of the University of Helsinki (Finland); finally he obtained an Associate Professor position in the Department of Analytical Chemistry at University of Valladolid. Moreover, he was working for 2 months (August 2012-October 2012) as visiting scholar at the University of Minnesota (Flavor Research and Education Center, Department of Food Science and Nutrition). During this period of time, he has developed analytical methods of separation employing liquid chromatography (LC or LCxLC) coupled to different detectors (DAD, FLD, MS, and MS/MS), gas chromatography (GC or GCxGC) with different detectors (ECD, MS), and capillary electrophoresis with UV detection (CE-UV). He has published more than 40 articles in SCI Journals and one chapter in a book, and he is Member of the editorial board of the SCI Journal of Food Analytical Methods. He has also presented more than 30 communications to scientific congress and participated in 15 projects with companies, universities, and different administrations. Current research focuses on developing different analytical methods to determine pesticides, antibiotics, rodenticides, and phytochemicals in environmental, food, and animal matrices.
