Gaėtane Lespes received a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry in 1987. Having been in engineering consultancies in instrumentation and environment, she joined the Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry of the University of Pau and Pays de l'Adour in 1990 . It is since 2001 Professor of Analytical Chemistry and Physical Chemistry Environmental. She is co-director of the Master 2 "Environment and Materials." She is a member of the National Council of Universities (CNU) - 31th section, member of the ISO / AFNOR "Quality water-organic micropollutants" member and secretary of the University Research Group on Technical Processing and Purification Water (GRUTTEE), member of the "Characterization of raw and biotransformed plant lipids and hydrophobic polymers for a green and sustainable chemistry" PlantLipol-Green Montpellier platform SupAgro Scientific Council. It develops analytical strategies for the study of speciation and distribution of trace metals in soil-plant and aquatic systems via coupled techniques (FFF-MALLS-ICP-MS, GC-PFPD, GC-ICP -MS.)
Analytical chemistry, development of strategy based on coupling (typically Field-flow Fractionation/ light scattering/ atomic mass spectrometry) for nano-object characterisation and speciation.
