Monique Johnson (Fed)

Dr. Monique E. Johnson, an analytical chemist, received her undergraduate degree in Chemistry from Lincoln University and her doctorate degree in Analytical Chemistry from The University of Massachusetts Amherst. She is presently a Research Chemist and postdoctoral fellow at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Dr. Johnson's current research is an interdisciplinary project which explores the uptake of engineered nanomaterials in a model organism, Caenorhabditis elegans, where internalized nanomaterials are detected via conventional and single particle ICP-MS (inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry), as well as TEM and confocal microscopy. As an analytical chemist, Monique has extensive experience in sample preparation of complex matrices such as human breast milk, plants, and food stuffs for total analysis, as well as ICP-MS and ICP-OES (optical emission spectrometry) analysis.
