About CSIC - Spanish National Research Council

The Superior Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) Authority is the largest public institution dedicated to research in Spain and the third in Europe. Attached to the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, through the Ministry of Research, Development and Innovation, its main objective is to develop and promote research to benefit the scientific and technological progress, for which it is open to collaboration with Spanish authorities and foreign.

    I am a researcher in evolutionary biology broadly interested in many aspects related with the study of genetic variability in natural populations. I use different molecular and analytical tools to understand the factors determining genetic variation across space and time and address questions that can be mostly framed within the interconnected fields of population genetics and evolutionary biogeography.

    Jordi Figuerola

    Senior Researcher at Estación Biológica de Doñana - CSIC. I work on ecology and conservation with a special emphasis on the study of vector borne zoonosis and the ecology of wetlands.

    I study animal behaviour, applied ecology and conservation biology of birds, unraveling the tricks they use in the field or in the laboratory. Birds make decisions as if they were optimizing the outcomes. But most of the times their performance just meets the needs without getting the maximum benefit, which represents an interesting evolutionary problem. Those who manage to maximize the benefit could leave more offspring, right?

    My main research interests include soil biogeochemistry, biotechnology, bioenergy and organic waste recycling in agriculture. During the last years I put special emphasis on understanding the impact of bioenergy by-products and black C (charcoal or biochar) amendment on C and N dynamics in soil. I studied chemistry in the University of Murcia (SPAIN) and I did my PhD on the recycling of olive mill wastes as soil amendment in CSIC. I have been working as a postdoc in Italy (Council of Agricultural Research, CRA), where I focused on the impact of different organic residues on soil enzymatic activity related to C and N cycles. In the The Netherlands (Wageningen University) I worked as a Marie Curie Fellow, studying the implications of using bioenergy by-products as soil amendments for C sequestration and greenhouse gas emissions. I worked in USA (Cornell University) as OECD fellow, where I studied the causes and mechanisms of N2O decrease after biochar soil amendment by using stable isotope techniques. During my scientific trajectory I tried to give insight to ultimate positive impacts and potential limitations of organic residues transformation for soil application. I looked not only at their impact on soil quality and fertility but also at the environmental implications, with special attention to greenhouse gas emissions.
