I’m a biologist (UB, 1997) working at CREAF as research technical staff since 1996, I hold a Master’s degree on Sustainable Water management (Universidad de Zaragoza, 2017) and I’m enroled in the PhD Environment and Society from the Universidad Pablo de Olavide, Seville. Since 1998 I’ve worked developing and applying GOTILWA+, a forest growth simulation model.

I’ve been involved in national (MONTES, MEDFORESTREAM) and European (ATEAM, SilviStrat, CARBO-INVENT, CCTAME, MOTIVE, CLIMSAVE) projects aiming at quantifying carbon and water balances in Mediterranean an European forests and assessing the impacts (drought, fire) of Climate Change on forest ecosystem services and their vulnerability. I’ve also been implicated in identifying adaptive forest management strategies working closely with the forest sector stakeholders.

At present, I’m involved in water vulnerability assessment and global change adaptations. I collaborate in LIFE+ MEDACC project and I coordinated BeWater project (FP7 Science in Society).

Currently, I’m the technical coordinator of a citizen science platform that involves society in the detection of forest alerts within the project Healthy forests for a healthy society.
