    Currículum breve

    Lluís Gómez-Pujol is a coastal geomorphologist, BSc (UIB, 1998) and PhD (UIB, 2006), with major interests in coastal biogeomorphology, coastal sedimentology and Quaternary studies. He also has developed pre-doc academic stays at the University of Aberdeen (Scotland, UK) and at the University of Melbourne (AU). During Post-doc period he developed academic stays at the University of Oxford, (UK), the University of Melbourne, (AU) and the University of the Ulster (Northern Ireland, UK).

    He is currently Reader of External Geodynamics at the University of the Balearic Islands. His D. Phil. Thesis focused on the role of organisms in weathering and erosion in limestone rocky coasts. After completing his PhD he undertook JAE-Doc post-doctoral research on beach morphodynamics and sedimentology at the Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies, IMEDEA (CSIC-UIB). From 2011 to 2017 he was the leader of the Beach Monitoring Facility at the Balearic Islands Coastal Observing and Forecasting System (ICTS SOCIB, MINECO-CAIB). He has been supervisor of 3 MSc theses on Coastal Geomorphology and co-supervisor of 2 PhD theses on Quaternary sedimentology and stratigraphy.

    He has published many scientific papers in international indexed and peer-review journals (i.e. Earth Science Reviews, Quaternary Science Reviews, Earth Surface Processes and Landforms, Geomorphology or Marine Geology) and international book chapters at monographs from Elsevier or the Geological Society of London among others.

    Dr. Gómez-Pujol has been member of the scientific committee of the 12th and 14th International Coastal Symposium (CERF) and, since 2014, he belongs to the International Advisory Editorial Board from the Earth Surface Processes and Landforms (Wiley), one of the most recognized journals in his area (Q1). Since November 2017 he is chairing the Rock Coast Working Research Group from the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG).
