Juan Andrés Casquero Vera obtained the degree in Physics and the M.Sc. degree in Geophysics and Meteorology from the University of Granada in 2014 and 2015, respectively. He was part of the Department of Applied Physics of the University of Granada from 2015 to 2022, where he developed his teaching and researching activities and where he compleeted his doctoral thesis. This thesis (entitled "Black carbon and fine aerosol particles characterization at different environmental conditions in the Southeast of the Iberian Peninsula") was rated with CumLaude grade and is composed of 3 papers published in peer review Q1/D1 journals. Nowadays, Juan Andrés is developing his research activity as postdoctoral researcher at IDAEA-CSIC.
His teaching activity was initiated with the subject Energy Management and Renewable Energies from the degree in Environmental Sciences, and Physics subjects on the degree in Architecture (Physical Fundamentals Applied to Structures and Physical Fundamentals Applied to Facilities). Actually, his teaching activity is centred on aerosol measurement techniques and atmospheric radiation on the Master of Geophysics and Meteorology at University of Granada.
His research activity is focused on Atmospheric Physics, mainly on air quality and atmospheric aerosol physical and chemical properties. Casquero-Vera research activities have focused on the characterization of aerosol particles and clouds, and therefore on climate, by using in-situ techniques. Currently his research mainly focuses on ultrafine particles and on the process aerosol formation by gas-to-particle conversion, conducting his research in close collaboration with the University of Helsinki (Finland).
