Laura Monclús Anglada
Background and activities
Laura gained a FINS fellowship at NTNU after being highly scored in the MSCA 2018 with the project PLAST-IMPACT, awarded with the Seal of Excellence by the European Commission.
She completed her PhD thesis in April 2018 at the Department of Animal Health and Anatomy at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. Her PhD thesis dealt with the use of feathers as a non-invasive matrix to assess stress response in birds and biomonitor environmental pollutants. Her research interest are now more towards the toxicity of microplastics and additive chemicals on birds.
She has also collaborated with several international groups of research, for example in the framework of the EU COST action European Raptor Biomonitoring Facility - ERBFacility.
