Assistant professor at the department of Geology and Geochemistry (Autonomous University of Madrid). Our research group is focus on remediation of soil and wastewater affected by organic contaminants such as antibiotics and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and heavy metals. Our main remediation techniques include adsorption on clays and organic amendments and bioremediation techniques such as biodegradation by ligninolytic fungi and enzymes or phytoremediation. I carried out my last research activity at the Institute of Natural Resources and Agrobiology of Salamanca (IRNASA) at the Spanish National Research Council. Our group worked on dynamic of herbicides on soils and soils amended with organic wastes. We carried out assays at laboratory and field scale. The main objectives were to determine the availability, leaching and dissipation of herbicides and the impact of these chemicals on soil microbiology.
