Jurgita Ovadnevaite graduated from Vilnius University in 2001 and received Ph.D. in natural sciences in 2007 from the Institute of Physics.
Her present work, as a leader of Aerosol Mass Spectrometry unit at Centre for Climate and Air Pollution Studies (C-CAPS) and School of Physics, NUIG, is focused on studying synergetic aerosol chemistry, physics and cloud processes. She is a PI and/or activity leader on a number of major EU and ESA projects: BACCHUS (FP7/2007- 2013/no 603445), ACTRIS (EU FP7-262254), ACTRIS-2 (Horizon 2020/No. 654109), OSSA (4000104514/11/I-AM) and a National Representative and Work group co-leader on a new COST-Action focussed on aerosol mass spectrometry, COST-COLOSSAL (CA16109)); Jurgita is a co-PI of the new national (EPA Ireland funded) research programme (AEROSOURCE, 2016-CCRP-MS.31) focused on Air Pollution comprising both national and international partners (Public Analysist Lab, UCC Atmospheric Chemistry Group, CNR-Bologna, Chinese Academy of Science).
Jurgita publishes her research in high profile international journals (Nature, 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 conferences, was a session chair and also gave invited plenary talks at several national and international scientific meetings.
