Erwin Rosenberg received his Diploma (1991) and PhD degree (1993) from the Vienna University of Technology, where he also habilitated on the “Development and Application of Hyphenated Chromatographic Techniques in Environmental Analysis” in 2000. He currently holds the position of an Associate Professor for Analytical Chemistry at this university and had during 2002-2006 also a professor position at the University of Mining and Metallurgy Leoben (Austria). He is head of the Group of Organic Trace Analysis and has for more than 25 years been actively developing and applying chromatographic and hyphenated methods for (environmental) trace organic analysis. His current fields of interest are the development of monolithic stationary phases for liquid chromatography, the development and application of multidimensional chromatographic techniques for environmental and natural substance analysis, and more recently also the analysis of organic materials (binding media, dyestuffs, organic pigments) in artwork and the analysis of volatile fragrances and odorous compounds in both industrial and environmental context. He is the author or co-author of more than 100 publications in peer-reviewed journals and proceedings, thirteen book chapters and has held numerous lectures at conferences. He has been and currently is a leader of several national and European projects, and is also a founding member of the European Virtual Institute for Speciation Analysis (EVISA). He serves as a regular reviewer for many important analytical journals and for various European funding agencies and is Editorial Board member of three analytical journals. Being strongly engaged in academic teaching, he has also headed the Study Commission in Chemistry at the TU Vienna for two periods and was a Member of the Eurobachelor/Euromaster Labelling Committee of the European Chemistry Thematic Network Association (ECTNA).
