Núria Pujol-Solà is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Mineralogy and Petrology of the University of Granada. She obtained her PhD (FPU grant) from the University of Barcelona, where she studied the origin of exotic mineral associations in ophiolites from eastern Cuba and Bou Azzer (Morocco) under the supervision of Dr Joaquín A. Proenza (UB) and Dr Antonio García Casco (UGR). Her research interests include the study of the oceanic lithosphere, mantle processes, serpentinization, metal transport, and the formation of ore deposits, particularly in mafic and ultramafic systems. She is currently investigating the mechanisms of zircon stability in chromitites and associated rocks-liquids using experimental petrology methods at the University of Granada, and collaborating with other researchers on the study of the petrogenesis of mafic rocks and ophiolites. Aside from her research, Núria is passionate about science communication and has given talks to the general public, written science communication blogs, and contributed to podcasts.
