Antonio Veloso Fernández earned his BS (2007) in Chemistry from the University of the Basque Country in Leioa (Biscay, Spain). In the 4th course of his BS (2005-2006) he spent 3 months working as analyst researcher in Hervel Electrochemistry S.L. in Ermua (Biscay). When he finished his BS (June 2007) he achieved a Leonardo Da Vinci scholarship by Confebask Fundation and he spent 6 months working as Organic Chemistry Researcher at Technique Institute in Chemistry and Biology (ITQB) in Oeiras (Lisbon, Portugal) (2007-2008). When he came back from Portugal he started his PhD in the Spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry Group (GEsEM-UPV) in Physic Chemistry Department of the University of the Basque Country (Leioa, Spain) in collaboration with Pharmacology Department. While he was starting his PhD, he studied a post-graduate master (MSc) in “Lasers and Advanced Spectroscopy in Chemistry” (QUIMILASER 2008/2009), Spain. He achieved his PhD grant in University of the Basque Country in February 2009. The research of his thesis was mainly focused on the detection of drugs and metabolites by MALDI TOF mass spectrometry using IMS technique. In order to complement his research and get the Doctor International degree he spent 3 months at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and National Institute of Health (NIH) in Baltimore (Maryland, USA). Finally, he earned his PhD from the University of the Basque Country on January 2013. 


He has a broad knowledge and experience on mass spectrometry techniques and he is familiar with a large number of MALDI mass spectrometers: Bruker Reflex IV (Bruker Daltonic), LTQ Orbitrap XL (Thermo Fisher), LTQ XL (Thermo Fisher), TOF/TOF (Applied Biosystem), and MALDI Ion Mobility System (University of Houston, USA). He worked as well with different types of softwares for sample treatment depending on the type of spectrometer in use. His knowledge and experience on HPLC and GC-MS techniques is also quite broad. Moreover he also worked with other chromatographic techniques such as column chromatography, TLC and gel chromatography. Since December 2012 he is working as a research technician in the BERC (Polymat) at the BERC and he is the person specialized and in charge of the characterization of polymers by MALDI TOF Autoflex mass spectrometer in the group.
