Outreach activities

Screen Shot 2016-07-08 at 11.49.23 As part of my outreach work I am member of the Communication Committee of the European Association of Geochemistry (EAG), and I am promoting EAG as the graphic consultant for the open-access journal “Geochemical Perspectives” (2015 Impact factor 8.8), that was created in part to aid in breaking the monopoly of ‘for profit’ journals.

 I am the main coordinator of the European Association of Geochemistry blogosphere. I have also been blogger during the Arctic Mars Analog Svalbard Expedition (AMASE) a NASA/ESA astrobiology expedition to the Arctic and several Goldschmidt conferences.

I have presented my work at many international conferences and symposia (e.g., Goldschmidt, European Geosciences Union, European Mineralogical Conference), also served as a convenor and been keynote and invited speaker.

For nearly a decade I was the main responsible of the most important website in Spanish language about Earth sciences, planetary geology, geochemistry and astrophysics. I have also contributed to some National Amateur Astronomy Congress meetings in Spain, giving talks about planetary geology and mineralogy. Besides, I have written articles for popular science magazines and organised a photo exhibition about the geology of planet Mars and the findings of the Mars Exploration Rovers Spirit and Opportunity.
