Stefano Polesello received his Ph.D. degree in analytical chemistry from the University of Milano in 1994, discussing a thesis about in situ spectroscopic studies of atmospheric reactions. After 2 years, spent as a Postdoc Fellow at the University of Milano and University of Verona, where he studied the effects of atmospheric pollution on cultural heritage, he joined the Water Research Institute (CNR-IRSA) as an Associate Researcher in 1996. Since 2003, he has been serving as a Senior Researcher at the same Institute. His main research fields include development and validation of advanced analytical methods (LC-MS-MS) for analysis of emerging pollutants in water; risk assessment of priority and emerging pollutants in internal and coastal waters; chemistry of atmospheric deposition in high altitude and remote areas; glaciochemistry. Polesello participated in the coordination of expert groups for the development of Italian official analytical methods for water (1997–2000), as an Italian delegate in the Expert Group on Analysis and Monitoring of Priority Substances (AMPS) for the implementation of Water Framework Directive (Directive 2000/60/EC) (2003-2004), and as an Italian expert in Chemical Monitoring Activity Group for Water Framework Directive Implementation (since 2005). He published about 50 research and invited review papers in international journals devoted to analytical and environmental chemistry. Since many years, he has been carrying out a continuative peer-reviewing activity for some international journals devoted to analytical and environmental chemistry, such as Food Chemistry, Journal of Chromatography, Annali di Chimica, Talanta, Atmospheric Environment, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, and Trends in Analytical Chemistry.
