Rosell i Melé, Antoni

ICREA Research Professor at UAB (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona). Experimental Sciences & Mathematics

Born in Barcelona, moved to England in 1990 after completing a final year project in organic air pollution to earn his higher degree in chemistry. He pursued a PhD in the School of Chemistry at the University of Bristol (completed in 1994) supervised by G. Eglinton on the application of biomarkers to decipher natural causes of climate change. This became the central topic of his research career. In 1994 he joined the group of J. Maxwell as a post-doctoral researcher also in the School of Chemistry of Bristol. In 1996 he moved as a NERC fellow to the Department of Fossil Fuels and Environmental Geochemistry at the University of Newcastle, England. In 1999 he became a lecturer in the department of Geography at Durham University, England, until 2001, when he moved back to Barcelona as an ICREA Research Professor.
