Dr. Jesús Colprim Galceran is Associate Professor (“Professor Titular”) of Chemical Engineering at the University of Girona since 2002. He graduated in Chemistry from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona in 1991 and obtained his PhD in Industrial Engineering from the University of Girona in 1998. Dr Colprim is member of UdG LEQUIA research group (ORCID code: 0000-0002-6000-069X) and has focused his research on the removal and recovery of nutrients from urban and industrial wastewaters and, since 2008, on bioelectrochemical systems (Microbial Fuel Cells and Microbial Electrolysis Fuel Cells). He has published more than 60 scientific articles indexed in SCI and has an “H” index of 20. He is also co-inventor of 2 patents, and principal investigator of National and European research projects. He has also held several academic management positions, such as deputy vicerector of research (2004) or coordinator of UdG Degree in Biotechnology (2012-2013). He is the director of LEQUIA research group since September 2013.
