Dr. Hiroyuki Kataoka, Professor of analytical chemistry at the School of Pharmacy in Shujitsu University, Okayama, Japan. He received a M.Sc. degree in 1979 from Osaka University, Japan, and a PhD in 1986 from Tohoku University. From April 1998 to March 1999, He worked with Professor Janusz Pawliszyn as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Solid Phase Microextraction Group at University of Waterloo (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada) developing in-tube solid-phase microextraction. Research interests are in developing selective and sensitive methods for the analysis of biologically active, potentially harmful or chemically interesting compounds in living systems, foods and the environment. His present research projects also cover the development of automated sample preparation methods and applications to environmental and pharmaceutical fields. He is an author of over 150 scientific publications and my Hirsch Index is 24. I am a member of the Editorial Board of Analytica Chimica Acta and Analytica Chemistry Letters.
