Dr Victoria Samanidou is born in Thessaloniki, in 1963. She is Full Professor and Director of the Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece.
Her research interests focus on the development of sample preparation methods using sorptive extraction prior to chromatographic analysis. She has co-authored 183 original research articles in peer reviewed journals and 56 reviews, 58 editorials/in view and 50 chapters in scientific books (H-index 38 (Scopus Author ID 7003896015, 4847 citations). She is editorial board member of more than 27 scientific journals and guest editor in more than 24 special issues. She has peer reviewed more than 633 manuscripts for 135 scientific journals.
In 2016, she was included in top 50 power list of women in Analytical Science, as proposed by Texere Publishers. https://theanalyticalscientist.com/power-list/the-power-list-2016
In 2020 she was included in the 2% top world scientists in the field of Analytical Chemistry (career – 2019, as well as single year 2019) published in PLOS Biology based on citations from SCOPUS.
She is Leader of Working Group 1 Science and Fundamentals of EuChemS-DAC Sample Preparation Study Group and Network (2021) and President of the Division of Central and Western Macedonia of the Association of Greek Chemists.
She is mother of 2 daughters (one chemist and one pharmacist).
