_ C. Domínguez obtained her BS degree in chemistry at the Barcelona
University in 1998 and her PhD in 2003 in the same university. She is currently
a contracted researcher on the Environmental Chemistry department from the
Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research of the Spanish National Research Council. Her research interests include the determination of
antibiotics and emerging pollutants in diverse environmental matrices.
Moreover, she takes part in the determination of the fingerprint of marine oil
spills in order to identify the source of contamination.
Matamoros, BSc in Biochemistry and Biology, PhD in Chemistry in 2007 at the University
of Barcelona (extraordinary thesis award 2007-2008). From 2009-2011 he held a
postdoctoral position at the Department of Chemistry in the University of
Girona (Juan de la Cierva contract). Actually he is a post-doc researcher at
the IDAEA-CSIC (JAE-Doc contract). His main research interests focus on the behaviour
of emerging organic contaminants in the environment and especially in
eco-efficient wastewater treatment technologies (constructed wetlands,
polishing ponds and advanced biological treatment systems), as well as the
development of analytical methodologies for their determination in different
environmental matrices (water, sediment and plants). He is co-author of 30
publications in peer-reviewed journals.
Carles Hurtado Cervera
Born in Barcelona in 1987. I graduated in 2010 from University of Barcelona with a degree in Chemistry. In the same year, I started a Master in Advanced Chemistry in the Analytical Department at the same university, where I researched sorption of Sulfamethazine in soils amended with Biochar. In 2013, I was awarded a grant from the Spanish Government to work on my Ph.D. thesis at IDAEA. My work is focused on the effects of biochar and nanoparticles on the plant uptake of some pharmaceutical and personal care product (PPCPs). Some of these PPCPs can be translocated by plants into the leaves, our main focus is to study if the large surface of biochar or nanoparticles may reduce this uptake. My last goal is to evaluate the possible metabolism of these compounds in plants. Hence, some instrumental techniques such as GC-MS/MS, GCxGC-ToF and UPLC-MS/MS will be applied.
Born in Sant Cugat, Barcelona (Spain) in 1989. Graduated in 2012 from Institut Químic de Sarrià (Barcelona) with a degree in Chemistry, also graduated in 2015 from University of Barcelona with a Master in Analytical Chemistry, where my research was focused on the development of a method for the extraction and determination of sulfonamides in vegetable matrix by UHPLC-MS/MS. In 2015, I was awarded a grant from the Spanish Government to work on my Ph.D. thesis at IDAEA -CSIC (Barcelona). The research aims to investigate the impact of chemical pollution due to atmosphere, rain, soil and irrigation water in selected crops (lettuce, artichokes, cabbage, tomato, eggplant and zucchini). This study will be performed in the delta of Llobregat (Barcelona, Spain) in a gradient of air pollution and water irrigation of different physico-chemical quality. Persistent organic micropollutants (PAHs, PCBs, DDTs, PFOS, PBDEs, triazine and phenoxy herbicides, pyrethroids), persistent emerging pollutants (carbamazepine, BPA, PFCA, antibiotics), heavy metals (Cu, Ba, Zn, Pb, Hg, Cd) and metalloids (As) will be analyzed.

Đorđe Tadić received in 2012 an M.Sc. in Food Engineering from the University of Novi Sad, Serbia (Faculty of Technology Novi Sad). The research part of his master thesis was performed at the Department of Biotechnology, Microbiology and Food Safety of the Biotechnical Faculty in Ljubljana, Slovenia; where the antimicrobial activity of phenolic extracts capsulated in β-cyclodekstrine and liposome was studied. After his master graduation, he worked in a sugar factory, where he was in charge for controlling technological parameters of sugar production and product quality. From October 2014, he has been working at the “Center of Excellence in Food Safety and Emerging Risks, Laboratory for Chemical Contaminants and Mass Spectrometry” at the Faculty of Technology, Novi Sad. He worked on the development and validation of methods for the analysis of different groups of organic pollutants. Analysis of persistent organic pollutants was performed employing UPLC-MS, GC-MS and GS-µECD in water, soil and food samples. Currently he is employed as an Early-Stage Researcher of the ANSWER project at IDAEA-CSIC and he is a Ph.D. student at the Technical University of Catalonia - Barcelona School of Biosystems and Agri-Food Engineering. His research focuses on the uptake of antibiotics and antibacterial contaminants and their metabolites in crops; the fate of antibiotics in soil-root system and on the identifying key physico-chemical properties affecting uptake, translocation and metabolization of antibiotics in field-scale irrigation and greenhouse experiments. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
