PhD in Biology, I am the research coordinator of CREAF. I am thus involved in project and tender planning and development, project evaluation, and networking with national and international research centres, SMEs, NGOs and governmental bodies. I am also the PI of the project MENFRI (EC, INCO), on boosting Mediterranean forestry innovation, and takes part in the projects INFORMED (EC, ERA-NET FORESTERRA), on Mediterranean forests resilience and management, and NEWFORESTS (EC, IRSES), on Euro-Canadian forests under global change, among others. My experience as coordinator was reinforced at CREAF with the project MONTES-Consolider, on Spanish forests and global change interaction, and began with a project about forest insects outbreaks as postdoc in the CEF-UQAM, Canada. There I also persevered with my principal line of research about ecosystems temporal variations and spatial heterogeneity. By means of different soil invertebrate communities, I have studied (and still trie to understand) the dynamics of Spanish steppes and forests, New Zealand forests, and Canadian forests and agroecosystems. My research has led to several talks and publications, as scientific as to a broader audience, at the national and international level.
