Graduated in Biology (U. Oviedo, Spain 2002). PhD in forest ecology exploring the effect of global change on a Mediterranean juniper (U. Valladolid, Spain 2010). Postdoc about the drought response of vegetative and reproductive traits of Mediterranean dioecious trees at Centre for Functional Ecology (U. Coimbra). Visiting researcher at the Departament of Ecology and Evolution (U. Lausanne, Switzerland).
I am a plant ecologist mainly interested in the study of the vegetative growth under different perspectives, for instance, reproductive costs, climate conditions, population dynamics and other ecological pressures that drive plant growth. This holistic approach has let me work in different research fields, such as dendrochronology, wood anatomy or spatial and image analyses.
