Antoni Ginebreda Martí
Dr. Antoni Ginebreda, Research Professor at the Department of Environmental Chemistry, occupying the chair entitled “Water quality and its management”. He accumulates 37 years of professional career, the last 17 devoted to the public management of water quality aspects. His current research interests are focused on all quality aspects of the water cycle, including the relationships between chemistry and ecology, ecotoxicology, wastewater treatment, pollutant fate and dynamics, pollutant prioritisation, environmental risk assessment and related regulatory issues. Recently, he has expanded his research interest into the field of polymer research using MALDI-imaging-QTOF-mass spectrometry technique.
Sandra Péres Solsona
Dr. Sandra Pérez (Female), scientific researcher at the Department of Environmental Chemistry Her work is focused on the study of occurrence, distribution and degradation of pollutants in the aquatic and terrestrial environment. Non-target approaches based in advanced mass spectrometric techniques using the hybrid techniques such as UPLC-Q ToF-MS and UPLC-QExactive-MS are applied for the detection and structural elucidation of novel transformation products and bio-metabolites of organic pollutants in biota and the water cycle. Recently, she has expanded her research interest into the field of polymer research using MALDI-imaging-QTOF-mass spectrometry technique.
Nicola Montemurro is a biologist and expert in wastewater treatment for its reuse in agriculture. He holds a PhD degree in Biodiversity, agriculture and environment by the University of Bari (Italy) in 2017. His PhD research studied the effects of the use of reclaimed municipal wastewater for crop irrigation. He is currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (Barcelona, Spain) to assess the fate of emerging organic contaminants in agricultural crops and their potential risks for the environment and human health. His research focuses on the presence of new emerging contaminants and their metabolites/Transformation products in different matrices (water, soil, crops, and earthworms). The assessment of the presence and fate of emerging environmental contaminants is based on field studies and laboratory scale experiments in controlled greenhouses. He is constantly involved in development of new analytical methods based on liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry of low and high resolution such as Q-Exactive Orbitrap and Hybrid Q-ToF systems.
Type of researcher: Post-Doctoral
FRANCESC LABAD ROIG
Francesc Labad is a chemistry student focused in Environmental chemistry. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry, and now is running an MSc degree in Analytical Chemistry both coursed at the University of Barcelona (Spain). His Master’s thesis consists on the effect of using reclaimed wastewater for crop irrigation by means of the uptake of pharmaceutically active compounds (PhACs) of these crops. In addition, he is also working on his PhD research at the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research, which will continue the Master research including PhACs metabolization by means of the crop plant but also the study of soil, water and specific wildlife. He is working in methods based on liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry of low resolution like Q-Exactive Orbitrap and in high resolution such as Hybrid Q-ToF.
Type of researcher: Pre-Doctoral
