Jordi Marcé-Nogué (Igualada, 1979) has Bachelor degree of Industrial Engineering issued from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Spain) in 2003 and PhD degree Resistència de Materials i Computational Biomechanics from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in 2009.
He started as a research fellow in the Departament de Estructures a l’Enginyeria and from 2006 he has being a assistant teacher in Escola Tècnica Superior d’Enginyeria i Aeronàutica de Terrassa (UPC) and a researcher at Laboratory for the Innovation of Structures and Materials (LITEM)
Daniel DeMiguel has a degree in Geology from the University of Zaragoza, and a PhD degree in Science (2009) from the University of Zaragoza focused on the biomechanics of the dentition and the study of dental wear of fossil ruminants from the Neogene of the Iberian Range basins. Shortly after defending his thesis, he joined the Department of "Neogene and Quaternary fauna" of the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel crusafont ICP as a postdoctoral researcher. Nowadays, he works in this center as a "Juan de la Cierva" researcher since 2012.
His main research interests are in the area of evolutionary paleoecology, covering a wide variety of problems related to the biological evolution of herbivorous mammals and the climatic evolution of the Iberian Neogene basins.
Josep Fortuny (La Roca del Vallès, 1980) has a Degree of Biology (Zoology) at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Barcelona, Catalonia (2006) and a PhD of Geology by the Universitat de Barcelona, Barcelona, Catalonia (2011) about the early tetrapods from the Permian and Triassic periods and its paleobiology using biomechanical approaches.
He started in paleontology as scholar in Institut de Paleontologia de Sabadell and after he got a predoctoral contract. Currently, he has a postdoctoral position in the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (Barcelona, Catalonia) and he is the coordinator of the Virtual Paleontology Research Group. His research focus on the paleobiology of early tetrapods using non invasive tecniques as CT scanners and biomechanical approaches as Finite Element Analysis (FEA).
Dr. Fortuny is member of the Society of Vertebrate Palaeontology (SVP) and the Association des Géologues du Permien et du Trias (AGPT).
Soledad De Esteban-Trivigno (Balcarce, 1975) obtained her PhD degree in Biology at the University of Valencia in 2008. From 2008 to 2010 she was Postdoc at the Paleobiology department in The Institut Català de Paleontologia. Nowadays she is Academic Director at Transmitting Science and Associate Researcher at the Institut Català de Paleontologia.
Lluís Gil (Barcelona, 1966) achieved a civil engineering degree in 1992 and a PhD from Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya UPC in 1997.
He currently is associate professor at UPC in the field of aerospace structures. Now is the Director of research of the Laboratory for the Innovation of Structures and Materials (LITEM). Co-author of 27 international journal and 45 conference contributions and 1 patent. Interested in modal analysis, composites and new applications of recycled materials.
