Dr. Andrés Rodríguez Seijo, Ph.D. since 2016 (by the Universidade de Vigo) in the area of Soil Science had a Licenciatura (equivalent to BSc+MSc) in Biology in 2012, and a Master’s at Terrestrial Ecosystems, Sustainable Use and Environmental Implications in 2013, both by the same University. His expertise was focused on the behaviour of lead and potentially toxic elements on mine, urban and shooting ranges soils, and their study through several techniques: soil extractions, phytoremediation strategies, application of lead isotopes as tracers, TOF-SIMS analyses to know the behaviour with soil components, use of nanoparticles to reduce available contents and application of ecotoxicological techniques. Also, he began to work with microplastics, and with several peer-reviewed publications. He’s author/co-author of 15 articles in SCI journals (h index of 5), four book chapters and 22 communications to national and international conferences. He was the co-supervisor of 2 MSc students, participated in three local, regional and European projects, and also acts a reviewer of 15 SCI journals.
