I am Forest Engineering by the Universitat de Lleida (MSc, 2005).

My work experience started in the field of engineering and consultancy, developing hydrological, floodability and impact assessment studies, and also as consultant to the Catalan Water Agency in the Plan for the maintenance and improvement of rivers and in the Plans for rivers areas.

Since 2009 I have worked as a technician in CREAF, assessing the effects of global change on water availability and forest ecosystems. Currently, I’m coordinating the technical part of the LIFE MIDMACC project (Mid-mountain adaptation to climate change) that promotes adaptation through the implementation and testing of different landscape management measures to meet climate change related challenges in marginal mid-mountain areas of Spain (La Rioja, Aragón and Catalonia), while improving their socioeconomic development. At CREAF I have been involved in the following projects: Adaptations to climatic change in water use (ACCUA); the European project CLICO (FP7), evaluating the relationship between climatic change, human security and water conflicts; the FP7 BeWater project developing Adaptation Plans with the participation of the society; and the LIFE MEDACC project (Adapting the Mediterranean to climate change), where we have tuned eco-hydrological and forest models to assess climate and global change impacts on water and forests at basin level, and tested different forest management models at forest pilot plots.
