Since 2015 I am an ICREA Research Professor at University of Vic and Coordinator of the Aquatic Ecology Group (GEA). I hold a PhD in Biology from University of Girona (Spain). After my PhD, I was a postdoc at the University of Oslo (2006) and the National Environmental Institute of Denmark (2006-2008), I worked as a research scientist at the European Commission-Joint Research Centre (Italy) (2009-2012), I was a Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Aarhus (Denmark) (2013-2015) and a Visiting Scientist at the Middle East Technical University, Turkey (2013).
Since I created the group in 2015, GEA has grown considerably from the initial 3 researchers to 19 members nowadays. In 2023, GEA has been awarded “Grup de Recerca Consolidat” distinction. Since its creation, GEA has obtained more than 30 competitive research projects, 7 PhD thesis were defended and more than 100 indexed papers were published.
