I hold a degree in Biology from the University of Barcelona (2012), for which I received the Biology's extraordinary award. After graduation, I did a Master in Terrestrial Ecology at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (2013), with a final project supervised by Daniel Sol about the behavioural drive hypothesis. In 2014 I obtained a DURSI grant to conduct my PhD thesis under Sol’s supervision.

My main goal in the thesis is to understand how organisms cope with environmental problems by means of behavioral adjustments and how this can affect their ecology and evolution. I use relative brain size as a proxy of the capacity of organism to construct new behaviors and to find innovative solutions to socio-ecological challenges. A transversal goal of my thesis is thus to find out in which circumstances a large brain might evolve.
