Boguslaw Buszewski graduated from the Faculty of Chemistry of the Maria Curie Sklodowska University in Lublin in 1982. In 1986, he received his Ph.D. degree from the Faculty of Chemical Technology, Slovak Technical University in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia. In 1992, he obtained the D.S. degree (Habilitation); in 1999, he became a Professor of chemistry. During 1974–1976, he was an Assistant Professor at the Department of Physical Chemistry, Maria Curie Sklodowska University in Lublin. Then he worked at the Department of Chemical Physics and Physical Chemical Separation Methods until 1994. Since 1994, he began to organize his research group at the Faculty of Chemistry, Nicoalus Copernicus University, and became the Head of the Chair of Environmental Chemistry and Bioanalytics, and he is still holding the same position till now. He has been a Humboldt Fellow at Tübingen University (Germany), and a Visiting Professor at several universities in USA, Japan, UK, South Africa, The Netherlands, and Taiwan. He serves as a Vice Chair of the Committee of Analytical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Vice President of the Polish Chemical Society, a Member of the Advisory Board of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and as a member of the editorial boards of 20 national and international journals. He authored or coauthored 12 books, numerous patents (most of them have been already implemented), lectures, and more than 250 scientific papers. He is one of the most citied Chemists in Poland (over 2500 citations). He was awarded by numerous national and international organizations (including Doctor Honoris Causa), and supervised 22 Ph.D. and D.S. theses. On October 2007, he was awarded by the Foundation for Polish Science: Mistrz Programme (academic grants for professors). His main scientific interests are in environmental analysis, chromatography and related techniques (HPLC, SPE, GC, CZE, adsorption, sample preparation), spectroscopy, utilization of waste, and sludge and chemometrics.
