About me

I started my scientific career as a laboratory assistant in 2001 with a research grant at the Institute of Earth Sciences Jaume Almera (ICTJA) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), Barcelona (Spain). I have obtained 4 fellowships (1 undergraduate , 1 graduate and 4 post -doctoral ) to conduct my research at four different centers: University of Barcelona- UB , ICTJA, International Center of Numerical Methods for Engineering – CIMNE, and the University of Bristol (UK) . In 2002 I obtained a BA in Geology from the UB with an Honors Degree Award, and in 2007 I finished my PhD in Earth Sciences at the ICTJA. Additionally, in 2008, I completed the Master Course in Numerical Methods in Engineering offered by the International Center for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE) (http://www.cimne.com).

I have participated in several research projects (4 European and 12 national ones) and acted as Principal Investigator of four national projects. Currently, I am the coordinator of the volcanology section for Spain in the EPOS European project (European Plate Observing System, https://www.epos-ip.org/ ).

I have been Secretary General of the Union Commission on Data and Information – UCDI of International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics – IUGG (2008-2015), Deputy Secretary of the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth ‘s Interior- IAVCEI (2007-2015) and commissioner of the IAVCEI Commission on Collapse Calderas (2008-2012). I have co-organized in several occasions the International Course and Workshop on Collapse Calderas of IAVCEI and co-organized and convened sessions at the EGU General Assembly (2012-2016), AGU Fall Meeting (2012), IAVCEI Scientific Assembly (2013) and IUGG General Assembly (2011,2015).

In general, my areas of expertise include experimental and numerical modelling of volcanic processes and database management and statistical modeling (e.g. Barde-Cabusson et al., 2014; Geyer and Martí 2009; Kinvig et al., 2009; Martí and Geyer, 2009; Martí et al., 2013a; Martí et al., 2013b; Pedrazzi et al., 2013; Sobradelo et al., 2010). Additionally, I have experience on hazard assessment in active volcanic areas, including Canary Islands and Deception Island in Antarctica (e.g. Bartolini et al., 2014; Geyer et al., 2016; Martí et al., 2008a; Martí et al., 2008b; Pedrazzi et al., 2014).
