Biography

Dr. Jurgita Ovadnevaite is a Postdoctoral researcher at Centre for Climate and Air Pollution Studies (C-CAPS) and School of Physics, NUIG. Her work is focused on studying synergetic aerosol chemistry, physics and cloud processes. She is responsible for the Aerosol Mass Spectrometry measurements at Mace Head and participates in several European research projects focused on the aerosol production and aerosol - climate interactions such as ESA Support to Science Element - OSSA, FP-7 ACTRIS, FP-7 BACCHUS. She is a task leader of the European FP-7 project BACCHUS. Jurgita publishes her research in high profile international journals (GRL, JGR, Nature Scientific Reports, ACP, AMT and others) and acts there as a reviewer. She has presented her work at numerous international conferences and was an invited speaker at the highest profile chemistry and geochemistry Goldschmidt conference in both 2011 and 2013.

Jurgita Ovadnevaite has published 24 peer-reviewed papers, 5 peer-reviewed proceedings.
