I was keen on science since I was a child (collecting plants, insects, etc.). I began volunteering activities in 1999; research and teaching in 2002, as a collaborator at the Complutense University of Madrid (Spain). I have been working in different Research Centers (Real Jardín Botánico, University of Castilla-La Mancha, Botanical Institute of the University of Liège, Missouri Botanical Garden, Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales, University of Lausanne, Indoamerica Technological University, Polytechnic University of Madrid, International University Menéndez Pelayo, etc.)
My research is focused on the integration of the diverse disciplines of spatial ecology, and predictive modelling with my ecological/botanical background. As a result, I have contributions to the fields of biodiversity patterns, biogeography, bioinformatics, botany, climate change effects on biodiversity, forest conservation and management, forest and plant ecology, community assembly, macroecology, etc. Currently, I am working at the Polytechnic University of Madrid, and my primary interest is how various drivers define forest species distribution and biodiversity patterns at different scales.
But, life is not all Science. One of my main hobbies is home brewing.
I will publish outreach Posts about my research in English and Spanish.
