I am an environmental scientist with strong interests in nature conservation and management. I’m currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the InForest Joint Research Unit, (CEMFOR – CTFC – CSIC – CREAF ) where I am working with Dr. Lluís Brotons and other colleagues from the Biodiversity and Landscape Ecolgy lab on evaluating the impacts of global change on biodiversity and ecosystem services linked to Mediterranean forests.
My research focuses on understanding the ecological and anthropogenic factors explaining landscape patterns and the interactions among them. Although I have a weakness for mountain systems and alpine environments, I’m keen to learn about any ecological system, their conservation problems and how quantitative landscape ecology tools can help us understand these systems and contribute to their conservation.
Things I am interested in (research): landscape ecology, geographic information systems, socio-ecological systems, cultural landscapes, ecosystem services, protected areas, habitats conservation.
Other things I love to do when I am not doing research: cycling, cooking, trekking, reading (lots of reading), swimming, nature observation and photography, painting, going out with friends for “tapas & cañas” and to concerts, travelling and having naps in the beach (although this doesn´t happen as often as I would like!).
Please, check my blog-in-progress to know more about my background, research interests and outcomes!
