Current Projects:

FUNSTREAM, Temporary fluvial ecosystems and global change: effects on ecosystem structure and functioning (CGL2014-58760-C3-2-R), Funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. Participants: University of Girona, University of Barcelona, Catalan Institute for Water Research. Duration: 1-1-2015 al 31-12-2017. Leader Researcher at the University of Girona subproject: Anna M. Romaní.

Collaboration with the University of Barcelona within the European project Interfaces-Ecohydrological interfaces as critical hotspots for transformations of ecosystem exchange fluxes.

Collaboration with the Hydrogeology Group at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC)

Research contracts with the enterprises Itram-Higiene and Cetaqua

Current research lines:

1 Impact of global change effects (such as warming and pollution) on biofilm formation, microbial interactions, biofilm functioning and metabolic outcome

2 Relationships between aquatic microbial community composition and functioning

3 Impact of drought on microbial biodiversity and organic matter degradation processes

4 Interactions between physical-chemical properties in sediment depth and biogeochemical and microbial processes

5 Mediterranean rivers, organic matter and hyporheic sediment functioning

6 Development of techniques for biofilm detection
