Javier Castro Larragoitia, lecturer and researcher at the Engineering Faculty of the Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí (UASLP), México. Geologist for the UASLP (1984), with a master degree in mineralogy (Diplom Mineraloge) for the University of Karlsruhe (Now-KIT) (1990), Germany. Doctor rerum naturalis (Dr, rer. nat.) (magna cum laude) (1995), specialized in geochemistry also from the Karlsruhe University.

From 1995 to 2001 worked as lecturer and researcher at the Geosciences Faculty of the Autonomous University of Nuevo León (UANL), Mexico and from 2001 on holds the position of lecturer and researcher at the Engineering Faculty of the Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí, Mexico, lecturing in Mineralogy and Geochemistry at undergraduate level and Environmental Geochemistry and Environmental Management of the Mining Industry at graduate level.

During the last 23 years have conducted more than 20 funded research initiatives in environmental geochemistry with focus in identify and characterize risks for the environment derived from natural sources and industrial activities with special focus on groundwater, soils and sediments, using state of the art techniques in geochemical and mineralogical characterization. Furthermore, I have developed several consulting activities on my research topic for the mining industry, water management authorities and private clients.

Derived from the research activities I have authored or co-authored 24 papers in international peer reviewed journals, 2 book chapters and more than 60 participations in international and national meetings.

I have also been invited lecturer by the UNESCO in several countries of Latin America to read on Geochemistry, Mining and Environment.
