Coordinator (IDAEA) - Spain

INWAT project - Sandra Perez

Dr. Sandra Pérez Solsona, Scientific researcher at the Department of Environmental Chemistry at Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research IDÆA-CSIC in Barcelona (Spain). Postdoctoral researcher at State University of New York at Buffalo (2003-2005). Her work is focused on the study of occurrence, distribution and degradation of pollutants in the aquatic and terrestrial environment with high resolution mass spectrometry techniques. In detail, her research is involved in the assessment of the transformation of organic pollutants in engineered systems with different treatments relying on biotic and abiotic processes, transfer of organic pollutants from reclaimed water to agricultural crops and fate and transformation of the organic pollutants in wastewater-impacted rivers and groundwaters. She has been involved in more than 20 projects (EU, national and US projects). She was principal investigator of PI of European projects and she is the coordinator of INWAT project.

INWAT project - Nicola Montemurro

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.

INWAT project - Diana Manjarrés López

Environmental Engineer with a master's degree in chemistry and biotechnology. Currently a PhD student in analytical chemistry and environment at the University of Barcelona and IDAEA-CSIC. The research it carries out aims to determine the presence and destination of polar and mobile organic pollutants (PMOCs) in intermittent rivers and groundwater with low and high resolution mass spectrometry.

INWAT project - Olga Gómez Navarro

Olga Gómez is an Environmental Scientist with master’s degree in Environmental Engineering both by the University of Barcelona. Currently a PhD student in Analytical Chemistry and Environment at the Institute of Environment Assessment and Water Research (Barcelona, Spain). Her PhD research will be focused on the evaluation of the degradation and transformation of pharmaceuticals in the aquatic system. The identification and analysis of these products will be performed by means of liquid chromatography coupled to high resolution mass spectrometry with a Q-Exactive Orbitrap.

IDAEA - Institut de Diagnosi Ambiental i Estudis de l'Aigua

IDÆA is an environmental science institute devoted to the study of the footprint of the chemical changes our species is imposing on the biosphere. Much of the research work at this institute is centered on two of the great environmental challenges of our time, namely the cleanliness and availability of the WATER we drink and the quality of the AIR we breathe, guided by the principle that our scientific understanding of current threats to global ecosystems is best approached from a holistic, systems-based viewpoint.The international research profile of the various research groups working at IDÆA is firmly grounded upon a solid analytical base operating within the institute building which houses large environmental geochemistry laboratories focused on analysing atmospheric and aqueous pollutants. The Institute is also responsible for prestigious, state-of-the-art air monitoring “supersites” that include advanced on-line instrumentation for the study of air pollution. These supersites are integrated into international networks and have enabled the institute to achieve research dominance in the field of source apportionment and transboundary migration of atmospheric pollutants.
