!!Cesar Ranero - Curriculum Vitae
The candidate scientific goal is to conceptually advance the understanding of fundamental processes of rifting, passive margins evolution, seafloor spreading, and subduction systems. For this end, he has specialized in complex, multi-disciplinary experiments, coordinating teams of multi-national scientists to acquire data during numerous cruises that have produced major breakthroughs. Based on seismic imaging and multibeam mapping, he has lead several drilling projects for ground-truthing and to constrain competing models. After being awarded an ICREA Research Professor in 2005 (Institució Catalana de Recerca i Estudis), he created the Barcelona Center for Subsurface Imaging (Barcelona-CSI) in 2007, where he currently coordinates the development of novel technologies to estimate physical properties and subsurface structure at the highest possible resolution and lowest uncertainty. The know-how of the Barcelona-CSI have permitted to seek funding from both government and industry stakeholders.\\
