Dr. Monika Jerigova, Comenius University and International Laser Center, both Bratislava, Slovakia, has been elected President of the Slovak Chemical Society (SCHS, Slovenská chemická spoločnosť) for three years starting from January 1, 2020. She is the third woman to become President of the SCHS.


Monika Jerigova studied chemistry at the Comenius University Bratislava and gained her Ph.D. in physical chemistry in 2004. During her Ph.D., she was a Research Assistant at the Johannes Kepler University, Linz, Austria. Currently, Monika Jerigova is an Assistant Professor at Comenius University and a Scientist at the International Laser Center, both in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Her research focuses on secondary ion mass spectrometry for analyzing the chemical composition of different materials, especially surfaces. Her interests extend from meteorites, through MXenes and perovskites, to biological samples. She was among the first who used adaptive control of post-ionization in secondary ion mass spectrometry with laser pulse shaping.

Monika Jerigova has been a member of the Slovak Chemical Society since 2002. She was the Executive Director of the organizing committee of the society's conferences in 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011, and 2013. These conferences are the joint national conferences of the Slovak and the Czech Chemical Societies, with an average number of participants over 500.
