    Alex Maldonado Researcher at DIOPMA @ Universitat de Barcelona

    I held a degree in Technical Architecture (EPSEB, UPC, Catalunya) and Materials Engineering (UB, Barcelona). I also held a Master's in Renewable and Sustainable Energy (UB, Barcelona). I joined in DIOPMA in October 2016 as a trainee. Currently, I combine the position as a research assistant with the position of adjunct lecturer in the Materials science and chemistry-physics department. I have just finished my PhD thesis based on the formulation of alkali-activated binders using bottom ash from municipal waste incineration. This investigation combines the main research that I am involved in, which are the valorisation of waste and by-products and the design of sustainable cement-based materials.

    Salvador Lladó Principal researcher, Applied Microbiology & Biotechnologies @ LEITAT

    Salvador Lladó Fernández holds a PhD in Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology (University of Barcelona, 2012). His career has been focused on R&D in the study of microbial communities associated to soil bioremediation processes (University of Barcelona) and forest soil bacterial communities and their role in the C cycle (Institute of Microbiology of the Czech Academy of Sciences). Currently he leads the Microbiome Engineering group within the Circular Economy Department at the LEITAT Technological Centre. His scientific interests are: the role of microbes as nature-based solutions to increase adaptation and mitigation of climate change and the application of microbial communities and/or isolates in different sectors of the bioeconomy, such as agriculture and industrial processes. He is also member of the climate change experts committee of the Catalan Parliament.
