Personal profile

Research interests

David Gabriel Buguña (Barcelona, 1971) scientific career began in 1994 when joined the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Autonomous University of Barcelona as assistant professor after having completed a degree in Industrial Chemistry. His PhD thesis was developed in the field of monitoring and control of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) using deterministic models, and was successfully defended in July 2000. Between April 2001 and September 2002, he joined the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering, University of California, Riverside, as postdoctoral researcher under the supervision of Professor Marc A. Deshusses. Research at UCR focused on the study of the feasibility of redesigning industrial-scale chemical absorption towers to be used as biotrickling filters for treating gaseous effluents of WWTPs. In September 2002, he went back to GENOCOV-UAB and started up, in collaboration with Dr. Javier Lafuente (GENOCOV), a new research line in the Department of Chemical Engineering at UAB focused on the design, characterization, monitoring and control of bioreactors for the treatment of volatile organic compounds, ammonia and hydrogen sulfide present in gaseous emissions. This research was also unprecedented at UAB and practically a national pioneer. In 2005 he became Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at UAB. In 2019, he became Professor in Chemical Engineering at the Department of Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering at UAB.
