Miren López de Alda Villaizán is PhD in Pharmacy by the University of Santiago de Compostela and currently works as Scientific Researcher at the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (IDAEA) that is part of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC). Previous to this, she worked for three years, between 1995 and 1998, as a guest researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Maryland, USA. Her main field of expertise is the environmental analysis of emerging contaminants by LC-MS/MS techniques. Miren López de Alda has participated in 18 national and 22 international I+D projects financed in public calls, being principal investigator (PI) or co-PI in 7 and 6 of them, respectively, and in 24 contracts with companies and/or administrations. She has published 176 SCI papers (Hirsch-index 61) and 30 book chapters, and has presented more than 300 contributions in national and international conferences. She has participated in various scientific and expert EU (Marie Curie, STREP, EURAMET, twinning) and Spanish Committees (ANEP, AENOR, AGAUR, etc.) and has supervised 7 doctoral Thesis plus various DEA, TFG and Masters. Her investigations on emerging contaminants (especially those related to the study of estrogenic compounds and drugs of abuse) have appeared in numerous occasions in the public media (press, radio, TV). Internet entries for “miren lopez de alda” related to her work have reached around 95.000. Since 2014, she leads the consolidated research group Water and Soil Quality Unit recognized by the Generalitat de Catalunya as “2017 SGR 01404” which is integrated by 27 members (14 of them doctors) bound through either permanent or temporal contracts to IDAEA-CSIC, plus a variable number of graduate, MsC and PhD students. Mid-to-long term scientific–technical interests and objectives of her research agenda focus on the study of pesticides, anti-cancer drugs and drugs of abuse in the environment, their significance for the environment and human health, and ways to eliminate them.
