Dr Avelino Alvarez-Ordóñez is Research Officer at Teagasc Food Research Centre, Moorepark, Fermoy, Ireland. He is Doctor in Veterinary Medicine and PhD from University of León, León, Spain. He is a food microbiologist with special interest in food safety, foodborne pathogens, bacterial physiology, bacterial stress responses, ecology and biocontrol of microbial biofilms, and novel technologies of food preservation. Overall, he has published to date around 40 articles in international peer reviewed journals, three scientific divulgation articles, two book chapters, one book, and seven scientific opinions. In 2014 he has been awarded a Starting Investigators Research Grant by Science Foundation Ireland. Since 2010 to date he has been appointed as an external expert in five working groups of the Panel on Biological Hazards (BIOHAZ) of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA, http://www.efsa.europa.eu/). He is member of the Editorial Board of Food Research International, he is guest editor for the special issue “Epidemiology, Detection and Control of Foodborne Microbial Pathogens” of the journal Biomed Research International and the Research Topic "Biofilms from a food microbiology perspective: structures, functions and control strategies" of the journal Frontiers in Microbiology, and he has acted as ad-hoc reviewer of international research projects (Czech Science Foundation) and research articles in a large number of SCI indexed journals (Appl Environ Microbiol, PLoS one, Int J Food Microbiol, J Appl Microbiol, J Microbiol Meth, among others).
Leonor Calvo Galván is an Assistant Professor in Ecology at the University of León (Spain). She has extensive experience in studying the functioning of forest, shrubland and heathland ecosystems and their recovery after perturbation, mainly after fires and global change drivers such as increased atmospheric nitrogen deposition. She has participated in numerous research projects, in some of them as PI, focused on the analyses of (1) the effects of wildfire on the structure and functioning of fire-prone forest ecosystems dominated by Quercus pyrenaica and Pinus pinaster, as well as (2) the effects of traditional management practices (burning and cutting) on heathlands/shrublands throughout the setting up of long-term manipulative experiments. Through her career at the University of León and collaborations with many researchers across Europe, she has become a reference investigator and a leading expert on the characterisation of the resilience/resistance of fire-prone ecosystems, which make it possible to identify the most suitable post-fire management strategies to aid their recovery after perturbations and, ultimately, to conserve them.
