Professor Pere Masqué, School of Science

Pere Masqué joined Edith Cowan University as a professor in September 2015, from the Department of Physics and the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (Spain).

His research focuses on the study of a variety of key, global environmental processes in both the present day and geologic past, using a suite of stable and radioactive tracers as novel proxies. He will use the award to attend the Aquatic Sciences Meeting organised by The Association for the Sciences of Limnology Oceanography (ASLO) to be held in Hawaii in 2017, where he aims to organize and chair a session, as well as presenting several papers and discussing the opportunity to bring the Aquatic Sciences Meeting to Perth.
