Office: C5b/016

I am a Doctor and researcher at CREAF and a lecturer of Ecology at the Department of Plant Biology, Animal Biology and Ecology of the Autonomous University of Barcelona.

During my scientific career, I have worked in various fields of forest and animal ecology, in arid and semi-arid systems around the world, and in mountain communities, where I have focused my activities for the last decade, leading and participating in projects related to the effects that global change may have on the mountain natural communities and how the humans affect them.

My work is lately focused on the strategies for a sustainable development of mountain social-ecological systems, i.e. taking a holistic approach that includes not only the natural components of a region, but also its social and economic context. I was part of the Scientific Committee of the Pyrenean Observatory of Climate Change (OPCC, Biodiversity Action) until 2014, and was an active member of the European Mountain Research Advocacy Network of the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI) until 2016. I am currently a member of the Advisory Board of the Pyrenean Observatory of Climate Change (OPCC), a member of the Board of Directors of Euromontana, and founding member and coordinator of the Network for European Mountain Research (NEMOR).
