María del Carmen Garrigós Selva

Chemistry PhD (2003). Full Professor in Analytical Chemistry in the University of Alicante (Spain) from 2001. Responsible of the analytical area in the Polymer and Nanomaterials Analysis Research Group. She currently has got two positive evaluations from the National Committee of Evaluation of the Research Activities dependent from the Spanish Government. She has participated in 30 research competitive research projects with public financing (6 of them as Principal Investigator), being the most relevant 4 consecutive projects financed by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (2008-2017) as well as two international projects under the H-2020 calls on-going from 2016 to 2020. In addition, he has participated in more than 100 research and innovation projects with different national and international companies, most of them as Principal Investigator.

She has been author of 2 books on Food Analysis and co-author in 16 book chapters in Biopolymers, additives analysis and development of methods for food analysis. Moreover, she has participated in 18 publications on academical research. Author or co-author of 40 research papers published in journals in Analytical Chemistry, Food Technology and Polymer Science, 33 of them published in journals in the first quarters of the respective topics. The total number of citations is 560, accounting for 86 citations per year in the last 5-year span and h index 16. She has participated in the scientific committees in many international conferences, particularly in the International Conference on Biobased and Biodegradable Polymers (BIOPOL). She has supervised 3 PhD thesis presentations and is currently supervising 3 more to be concluded in 2017-2018.

The main research areas are:

  • Chemical characterization of polymers and biopolymers.
  • Environmentally-friendly additives in polymers.
  • Active packaging. Natural antioxidants/antimicrobials for active packaging.
  • TPUs obtained from vegetable oils.
  • Protein-based formulations in active packaging.
  • Valorisation of agro-food wastes and by-products.
  • Food chemical and nutritional analysis. Authentication analysis and frauds detection.
  • Degradation of biodegradable polymers and sustainable composites.

She maintains numerous collaborations with Spanish and International institutions. In the national field long-time collaborations with Polytechnic University of Valencia, University of Perugia (Italy), KTH Stockholm (Sweden), University of Coimbra (Portugal) and many others should be highlighted.
