I have been a researcher at CREAF since January 2002. I was formerly a reader in Forest Science and Silviculture at the Universitat de Lleida.
 
My main research lines include the dynamics of Mediterranean forests and in particular:
 
  • The analysis of the role of management and site quality on forest structure.
  • The role of forest structure on fire behaviour and severity after large wild fires.
 
I am also working in the analysis of inventory data and I have coordinated a forest inventory of singular forests in Catalonia, which includes a reference system for the plurifunctional management of the forest, and the development of a computer tool for the analysis and quantification of the different values of the forest.
 
I am also coordinating a series of technical guides of good practices in forest management for scientists and managers for the main forest habitats in Catalonia. I have participated in projects funded by the UE, in national projects and in relevant contracts with administrations.
