+ I am a quantitative ecologist interested in the curation and analysis of biodiversity data. In terms of study taxa, habitat or ecological discipline, I am definitely a generalist. + I am proficient in R programming, multivariate ordination and compilation of biological databases. I have published 31 peer-reviewed papers, lectured 15 postgraduate courses on multivariate statistics and described 4 species new to science. I hold BSc in Biology/Zoology (1991), MPhil in marine ecology (1992-1996), PhD in population dynamics (2007-2012), and have completed two postdocs in ecophysiology (2013-2015) and palaeoecology (2018-2020). Throughout, I have experienced 12 years of career interruptions mostly due to parenting responsabilities. + I write popular
science on biodiversity and global change since 2011, resulting in more than
100 printed articles and blogs. + In my current postdoc with the Spanish National Research Council
(January 2021 to January 2022), I am bioprospecting amphibian communities and
their pathogens in Northern Spain using environmental DNA. + Listen a
recent interview (in Spanish) on
biodiversity and extinctions (Radio 4 / Radio Nacional de España)
Below I show some aspects of ongoing research work.
