Ana Cabrerizo Pastor
Research group: Global Change and Genomic Biogeochemistry
Dr. Ana Cabrerizo is an internationally recognized researcher with more than 16 years of experience in the study of the fate and behaviour of organic pollutants in various environmental compartments. Cabrerizo’s interests are focus broadly on the environmental chemistry and biogeochemistry of persistent organic contaminants (POPs) in terrestrial and aquatic environments. Field sites are temperate and polar areas, such as the Antarctica and the Arctic, in which Dr. Cabrerizo was the project leader of 8 sampling campaigns performed in the last 10 years. Much of this work was done by Dr. Cabrerizo as a PhD and four postdoctoral stages (>7 years) at highly ranked international institutions (Environment Canada, European Commission, Lancaster University and IDAEA-CSIC). Her pioneering research focussing on contaminants in polar environments, has resulted in highly impacted 30 publications and several technical reports. She is also participating as an expert in the Arctic Contaminants Action Program (ACAP) and Arctic Monitoring Assessment Programme (AMAP) POPs Expert groups together with the organization and chairman of international conferences.
