About me


I’m a Ph.D. student at the Forest Science and Technology Centre of Catalonia (CTFC), Spain, and I have a degree in forest engineering. In general terms, my research focuses on applying systematic conservation planning tools to better inform decision-making when managing biodiversity in the context of dynamic landscapes and climate change.

My interests are related to the incorporation in the conservation planning process of new components compromising biodiversity conservation so far. Such as land use change or social and anthropogenic aspects, to enhance accuracy in solutions and better inform decision-making. During my internship at the Conservation Biogeography lab, I would like to explore the incorporation of the land-use change/history component in the prioritization processes, and how this could change when having different scenarios or conservation objectives.
