I study spatio-temporal changes in forest dynamics and their causes, focusing mainly on climate change. I generally work with large databases and advanced statistical models, using workflows that maximize the managing, cleaning, transforming, visualizing and modeling data.

I am also one of the coordinators of the Ecoinformatics group of the Spanish Association of Terrestrial Ecology where we aim to promote the exchange of experiences and knowledge on any aspect related to ecology and computing, in addition to contributing to the training of new ecologists in good computing practices and techniques that allow them to develop their research projects to the fullest.
