Albert Ruhí

Born in 1984. BSc in Biology (2006) and PhD in wetland ecology at the Institute of Aquatic Ecology of the University of Girona (2007-2011), with research stages at the Linnaeus University, Sweden (2009), and the University of Georgia in Athens, USA (2011).

Since March 2012 I have been working at the Catalan Institute for Water Research (ICRA) as a Postdoctoral researcher. My major research interests are focused on (i) quantifying the impacts of global change on the structure and functioning of aquatic ecosystems, with a special emphasis on food webs and biological traits; and on (ii) identifying the variables that make aquatic ecosystems restoration projects succeed or fail, in order to achieve a better knowledge on how to offset current freshwater biodiversity loss. I have participated in several EU LIFE-Nature projects, as well as in DEPREMED and RETROMED Spanish ones.
