I was doctorate in Chemistry in December 2012 with cum laude honors and my PhD thesis was awarded as the best one of the Department of Analytical Chemistry of the University of Barcelona during the course 2012-2013. Since then, I've been involved in the study and development of new methodologies for the analysis of emerging contaminants in food and in the environment, with special interest on micro/nanoplastics in the environment (including fuel-based and bio-based polymers) and their potential entrance to food web. Since January 2022 I have a permanent position as a Researcher in IDAEA-CSIC.
My research has been carried out thorough the participation in 11 National projects, four as PI (two on-going) and two as the Project Manager, 7 European projects and 1 international project. In addition, I won a short stage Marie Curie fellowship in the scope of Environmental Chemoinformatic - Initial Training Network during my PhD to be developed in Hochschule Fresenius University of Applied Sciences (Germany) and, afterwards, I obtained a postdoctoral fellowship IJCI-2014-21736 in 2016.
This research yielded, since 2008, 61 scientific papers (20 as the first author) in SCI journals from the first quartile, and 8 book chapters and I have participated in 44 national and international conferences, with 29 oral communications and 32 poster presentations. According to the Scopus ranking, my publications have been cited more than 2,700 times, resulting in a H-index of 32 (2008-2022). Furthermore, my research has also been echoed in mass media, including general newspaper and audiovisual (radio and TV).
Dr. Llorca, doctorate in Chemistry in December 2012 with Cum Laude honours, was awarded with the best PhD thesis of the Department of Analytical Chemistry of the University of Barcelona during the course 2012-2013. During her PhD won a short stage Marie Curie fellowship in the scope of Environmental ChemOinformatic – Initial Training Network (eco-itn). Since 2016 she has a postdoctoral fellowship Juan de la Cierva Incorporación (IJCI-2014-21736) to develop her investigation at the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research from the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (IDAEA-CSIC).
She has participated in 8 National projects (one as the lead IP and two as the Project Manager (Integra-Coast; and PLAS-MED (in course)), 6 European projects and 1 international project. She has published 47 scientific papers (17 as the first author) in SCI journals from the first quartile since 2008, 5 book chapters and participated in 36 national and international conferences with 22 platform presentations and 26 poster presentations. According to the Scopus ranking, her publications have been cited more than 1140 times, resulting in a H-index of 23 (2008-2018).
Main research line focuses on the study of new emerging contaminants, their fate, behaviour, ecological impact to the environment, their potential transferability from the environment to food and drinking water, and, finally, their effects to humans. In this sense, the investigations are based on target and non-target studies. Afterwards, these investigations are applied as the basis of risk assessment studies.
