Research group: Environmental Geochemistry and Atmospheric Research (EGAR)

Bachelor in Geology from the University of Zaragoza (1989) and Doctor in Geology from the University of Barcelona (1994). Research Professor of IDAEA-CSIC with more than 25 years of experience in research in environmental geochemistry and air pollution. My research career has been developed on the lines of environmental geochemistry and natural resources and recycling of industrial waste. In recent years, it has focused on the geochemistry of atmospheric aerosols in urban, regional and remote environments, because of its impact on air quality, human and health radiative balance.
More than 300 articles in SCI journals. Supervisor of 10 PhD Theses. Included in the ISI Highly Cited Scientists.
Currently, I am the scientist responsible of the EGAR network of stations measuring atmospheric aerosols, composed of urban background stations (Barcelona), regional background (Montseny) and remote background (Montsec). I led de participation of IDAEA CSIC in the ACTRIS RI (Aerosols, Clouds, and Trace gases Research InfraStructure) network). ACTRIS RI has been selected to the ESFRI roadmap in 2016.


Together with researchers and European citizens CAPTOR aims to – install and maintain a network of low-costs sensors for Ozone measurement with and for European citizens – deliver high quality, low cost and valid Ozone data from the sensor network – support processes of discussion and learning on local level to find solutions to Ozone problems (involving local decision makers, citizens, organisations and researchers) – actively involve and empower European citizens to stimulate ownership and responsibility
