My Dr. degree was awarded (1993) by Barcelona University for work at the Earth Sciences Institute (CSIC). After a postdoc (93-99) and tenure (2000) at GEOMAR, I joined ICREA in 2005 to work at the Marine Sciences Institute (CSIC). I have published >100 articles with >3400 citations and h-index = 37. I have written several book chapters and ~20 non SCI papers. I have >400 contributions to international congresses and delivered >40 invited talks and seminars at European/American universities, research centers, and congresses/workshops. I have been organizer, convener, or program committee member of >30 international scientific meetings. I have been PI or CO-PI of over a dozen projects that included ship cruises. I have supervised the work of more than 20 graduated and postdoctoral researchers. Since 2007 I coordinate the Barcelona Center for Subsurface Imaging (http://www.barcelona-csi.cmima.csic.es) with 20-25 scientists.
