Biography

Dr Caroline Gauchotte-Lindsay graduated in applied physics and chemistry from the ESPCI-ParisTech (Ecole supérieure de Physique et Chimie Industrielles de la ville de Paris) in 2004. She holds a DEA in analytical chemistry from the Université Paris VI (Pierre et Marie Curie) and an MSc in forensic science from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. She obtained her PhD in Environmental Engineering in 2010 from the Queen’s University Belfast in Northern Ireland.

Before joining the University of Glasgow as a Lecturer in September 2012, she conducted her postdoctoral research in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Strathclyde where she pursued her research in the development of original and cutting edge analytical solutions to elucidate the fate of organic micropollutants in subsurface environments to optimise risk assessment, liability identification and remediation strategies.

Research Interests

Dr Gauchotte-Lindsay’s research interests lie in investigation of the changes in the signatures of complex environmental samples during physical, chemical and microbial processes in the subsurface and in engineered water systems at bulk, intermolecular and atomic levels. Her current focus is two-fold: the investigation of the links between changes in chemical signatures and microbial ecology and the modelling and study of the environmental impact of the release of organic compounds by the resource extraction industry.

Expertise

As an analytical chemist specialised in environmental and forensic applications, Dr Gauchotte-Lindsay’s specialises in the development of new sample treatment and analytical methods to help characterisation of the fate of complex organic environmental samples. Her expertise lies in advanced analytical techniques such as pressurised liquid extraction, advanced stable isotope mass spectrometry and comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography.
