Beatriu de Pinós Postdoc
I am a Biologist with a Beatriu de Pinós postdoctoral fellow at the IDAEA institute. I am interested in detecting and solving environmental problems related to surface water quality. I am focused on the development of new methods for detecting and deciphering apical modes of action of environmental contaminants in aquatic organism and linking those responses with changes at cellular, metabolic and molecular levels. My research fields are Environmental Chemistry, System Biology, Ecotoxicology, Stress Biology and Animal Physiology. I have worked with a wide range of aquatic species including invertebrates (bivalves, crustaceans, insects) and vertebrates (fish), in both laboratory and field studies.
