About Natàlia Corcoll Cornet

Research Area

I am doing reseach in ecotoxicology and ecological impact assessment in aquatic ecosystems. My research focuses in developing new tools and approaches for ecological and chemical risk assessment that can be applied in biomonitoring programs and to improve the current water quality legislations. I am also interested in understanding the mechanisms of tolerance development to chemical toxicity in algae (evolutionary toxicology). To assess the impact of multiple-stressors on biota is another important work in my research.

Primarly I use algae and periphyton communities (so-called biofilms) as biological models. They are considered important sources of food and oxygen production in rivers and coastal areas. My research is primarly a collection of field and lab-based data that seek to find relationships between environmental stressors (chemical pollution, water quality, etc) and structural, physiological and molecular responses of microbial communities. Recently I started to apply genetic tools (i.e. DNA metabarcoding and metagenomics) in my toolbox for biofilm carachterization.
