Welcome Emma

Welcome Emma to Kruvelab! In the autumn, we were lucky to participate in an interlaboratory trial on non-target screening (NTS) with liquid chromatography high-resolution mass spectrometry (LC/HRMS) alongside other Swedish labs. We were able to test our ability to identify spiked chemicals in blind water samples as well as quantify the tentatively identified chemicals with […]

26. Norsk Symposium i Kromatografi

From the 21st to the 23rd of January Amina and Anneli attended the 26th Norsk Kromatografisymposiet, where Amina also presented her most recent research on evaluating the limit of detection for non-target LC/HRMS. Norsk Symposium i Kromatografi (Norwegian Chromatography Symobosium) takes place every two years in the Sandefjord, which is about 1.5 h drive from […]

ICNTS 2023 in Erding, Germany

In the middle of October, a large part of our group had a chance to present and discuss our research in ICNTS 2023 in Erding, Germany. ICNTS, International Conference on Non-Target Screening for long, is a biannual conference focused on detecting, identifying, and characterizing unknown chemicals with high-resolution mass spectrometry and other techniques. The rather […]

EcoBalt 2023

The 23rd biennial International Conference EcoBalt 2023 was held in Tallinn this year. The conference drew together researchers from various fields of chemistry, from toxicologists to materials scientists, focusing on chemicals and the environment. The topics covered methods for detecting and understanding contamination as well as potential solutions to deal with the pollution. As a person […]

APMRS 2023 in Innsbruck

From 27.-29. of September, I attended the Austrian Proteomics and Metabolomics Association (APMA) meeting in a breathtakingly beautiful Innsbruck, Tirol. The three days were filled with exciting talks on proteomics (my special focus was studies related to toxic effects) and different aspects of metabolomics (amino acids, xenobiotics, lipidomics). I was invited to give a keynote […]

WISE Welcome Meeting

The new WISE initiative of the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation for “Material Science for Sustainability” launched an introductory meeting on the 28th-30th of August. The conference, situated at Vildmarkshotel in an area of outstanding natural beauty east of Norrköping, provided a broad range of presentations, from science, industry and management. David Karis, senior project […]

Welcome to Kruvelab, Lena and Ida!

We’re excited to introduce Lena Aisch and Ida Rahu, our latest additions to the group. Lena recently joined us for her MSc thesis, focusing on interpretable machine learning for the detection of toxic chemicals in non-targeted LC/HRMS. Lena came to Sweden for the master’s programme in analytical chemistry at Stockholm University, and we are thrilled […]

Accelerate Conference 2023

Under the theme “A materially better future for everyone” the Acceleration Consortium hosted the Accelerate Conference 2023 in Toronto from 22nd to 25th of August. For me it was the first chance to meet people from the field of machine learning based material design in person after reading many papers over the last months. The […]
