Maria Raja

Postdoctoral researcher

I am a postdoctoral researcher at ICTA-UAB. I hold a PhD in Environmental Science and Technology (UAB, 2019), an MSc in Analytical Chemistry (UB, 2014) and a BSc in Chemistry (UB, 2013).

My interdisciplinary research domain explores the Earth dynamics in past and present times in order to understand the natural global cycles that regulate our climate, and how they are changing due to anthropogenic impacts.

In general terms, my main areas of interest are 1) the development of novel biomarkers methods to provide quantitative information on natural processes, 2) the validation and constrain of paleoproxys on their application at a global scale, and 3) the study of organic matter fluxes in the ocean, from surface to sediment.

My ongoing research is based on the study of the global atmospheric circulation and its variability through time (PALADYN-ERC project). The main goal of this project is to develop an innovative paleo-proxy approach to investigate the natural variability range of the Hadley circulation during past periods of extreme warmth and cold.
