Jean Froment is a researcher at the climate and research institute NILU.
Jean has conducted his PhD. at the Norwegian institute of Water Research (NIVA) and University of Oslo (UiO) focusing on Effect-Directed analysis (EDA). His post-doctoral experiences at the UFZ (Leipzig, Germany) and Stockholm University (Sweden) focused on performing nontarget analysis of biological and environmental samples.
Jean’s main research interests include the screening of environmental samples (particulate matter, water…) by chromatography (LC, or GC) coupled to high-resolution mass spectrometers (HRMS). Together with in vitro bioassays, nontarget analysis allows the detection of unexpected toxicants in the environment.
Jean is also passionate about the use of open-source software for the data processing of HRMS data and in silico tools to reveal the chemical composition and structure of unknown features.
