Biography

I’m biologist and Master in Applied Statistics from University of Granada (Spain). I’m a PhD candidate at University of Granada. The focus of my disertation is the spatio-temporal dynamics of Pyrenean oak forests (Quercus pyrenaica) in Mediterranean mountains.

Currently I work as ecologist and applied remote sensing scientist studying the effects of disturbances on Mediterranean ecosystems in the Department of Mediterranean Pastures and Sylvopastoral Systems (Zaidín Experimental Station, Spanish National Research Council). Previously I worked at Laboratory of Ecology of Andalusian Institute for Earth System Research (2009-2021), involved in the Sierra Nevada Global Change Observatory and in the Sierra Nevada LTER-site. I also worked as freelance ecologist consultant, focusing on restoration projects and ecology of threatened species.

I like to introduce myself as ecoinformatic. My expertise is on analysis of ecological data with R and programming tools. High experience in use of R, GIS and reproducible science tools (metadata). I’m currently co-leading the Ecoinformatic Working Group of the Spanish Terrestrial Ecology Association (AEET).
