Dr. Xavier Delclòs Martínez

Professor titular


Perfil individual

Les seves línies investigadores i d’especialització es centren en l’estudi dels jaciments de conservació excepcional (Konservatt-Lagerstätten) de fòssils continentals, el seu origen de formació, i en la evolució dels artròpodes que contenen.

Inicià la seva recerca en paleoentomologia el 1986 amb l’estudi dels insectes del jaciments lacustres de calcàries litogràfiques d’Espanya, juntament amb els primers estudis tafonòmics del grup. Va defensar la seva Tesi doctoral el 1991. A partir del 1996 centra la seva recerca en l’estudi dels ambres del Cretaci Inferior, el seu contingut paleobiològic i la seva formació, que compatibilitza amb l’estudi sistemàtic i filogenètic d’insectes fòssils, principalment Mesozoics i Cenozoics, i de la gènesi d’alguns dels jaciments que els contenen. Des del 1998 pertany al GRC “Geologia Sedimentària”.

Va obtenir el premi a la millor Tesi Doctoral en Geologia, atorgada per l’Institut d’Estudis Catalans el 1995. Ha estat membre organitzador de diversos congressos nacionals i internacionals, i es des del 2006 Vice-President de la IPS (International Palaeoentomological Society). És membre del comitè científic de diverses revistes especialitzades en paleontologia, geologia i entomologia. És membre de la Comissió de Recerca del Departament de Cultura de la Generalitat de Catalunya. Des del 2005 dirigeix un equip de recerca sobre l’ambre d’Espanya en el que hi participen 14 investigadors d’Europa i els USA. Ha dirigit cinc tesis doctorals, i dues més en vies de realització, i ha publicat més de 120 articles del quals 80 en revistes indexades per l’ISI.

És Secretari de la facultat de Geologia des del 2006, des d’on coordina de les relacions i activitats amb l’ensenyament secundari, i coordina el màster “Paleontologia” des del 2010.
