Teresa Moreno serves as a Senior Research Scientist at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). She was educated at the Complutense University of Madrid, Spain, and obtained B.S. and M.S. degrees, and after early work with the Spanish Geological Survey, she completed her Ph.D. degree at the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences, the Cardiff University (UK, 1999) on micromineralogy and geochemistry of platinum-rich ultramafic rocks in Cape Ortegal (Galicia, NE, Spain). After a Fulbright Scholarship-funded visit to the Colgate University (Hamilton, NY, USA), in 2000, she returned to UK to become a Postdoctoral Researcher for the British Medical Research Council (physicochemical characterization and health effects of inhalable particulate matter). She joined the CSIC in 2004 as a Ramón y Cajal researcher, won a tenured position in 2006, and was promoted to Senior Scientist in 2008. She has published more than 80 articles in SCI journals and contributed to over 30 books and other publications. She is a Coeditor of the book Geology of Spain and Geology of Chile (published by the Geological Society of London), with a third volume, dealing with the geology of Japan, currently in progress. Her main research interests relate to the geochemistry, mineralogy, and human health effects of atmospheric aerosols, especially trace metals and particles derived from rocks and soils.
