Educational Background

  • B.S., Geology, 1973, Universitat de Barcelona
  • Ph.D., Geology, 1978, Universitat de Barcelona


  • Paleoenvironmental reconstructions, mostly of nonmarine environments, using sedimentological and stratigraphic data in combination with paleoecology and geochemistry of biogenic carbonates.
  • Characterization of paleoenvironmental indicators based on the elemental and isotopic chemistry of carbonates.
