About me

Dr. Lluís Gómez-Pujol is a coastal geomorphologist interested in coastal erosion processes from a physical point of view. He obtained a degree in Geography in June 1998 (Dept. of Earth Sciences, University of the Balearic Islands, Spain), the Advanced Studies Diploma in Physical Geography in 2002 and the University Diploma in Geology in 2005, at the University of the Balearic Islands. The candidate obtained the PhD in 2006 with the thesis entitled "Erosion patterns, denudation rates and morphologies at carbonate rock coasts of Mallorca” that was marked with the highest level (cum laude by unanimity) and was proposed for the Extraordinary Award of the University of the Balearic Islands. The PhD Research tackled rock coast erosion dynamics and morphology with a special emphasis on the relation between ecological processes and rock coast erosion rates. Post-doctoral research focused in beach morphodynamics and coastal issues and was mainly carried out at IMEDEA (CSIC-UIB), although he has remained temporally at Melbourne (Australia), Oxford (UK) and Ulster (Northern Ireland) universities. Dr. Gómez-Pujol has published 71 scientific works (including 20 SCI papers and 3 books on coastal geomorphology) and reviewed articles for many peer-reviewed SCI journals. He has attended to several international and national meetings and has participated as principal researcher or principal co-researcher in 6 research/contract projects and as collaborator in other 9 projects (European and national). He has a large experience in coastal field surveys (terrestrial and marine campaigns) at Balearic Islands, Portugal, France, Sweden, England, Northern Ireland and Southern Australia. Additionally Dr. Gómez-Pujol is teaching coastal geomorphology subjects at BSc and MSc degrees at the University of the Balearic Islands where he has supervised 2 MSc theses.
