Biography
I am a biologist and passionate naturalist from the Canary Islands (Spain) interested in biology, conservation, management of endangered species, and biogeography, After finishing my bachelor's degree in Biology at the University of La Laguna (Tenerife, Spain) I had the opportunity to work on the reintroduction project from the white-tailed laurel pigeon (Columba junoniae), in Gran Canaria from for two years. After this, I moved to mainland Spain to complete a master's degree in conservation biology at the University of Granada, where I ended up working for the University of Alcala investigating the ecological implications of the scatter-hoarder behaviour of magpies (Pica pica) on seed dispersal and tree recruitment. At the same time, and with some colleagues from the Canaries, I was conducting a study about the impact of sea-bird colonies on the conservation of the critically endangered Canarian speckled lizard (Gallotia intermedia). Finally, in May 2018, I got hired by the University of Braunschweig to conduct monitoring surveys over the common fire salamander (Salamandra salamandra) populations of the Eifel region. Apart from these activities, I have had also the chance to work in different projects, from different institutions, related to the reptiles species from the Canary Islands such as the Tizon lizard (Gallotia galloti) and the lizards from the rocks of Anaga (Gallotia galloti insulanagae) and the Tenerife gecko (Tarentola delalandi). In 2018, and thanks to a Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant, I made my PhD at UCL. The subject of my PhD was the influence of species' life-history strategies on their response to climate and land-use changes.
Research Summary
I'm interested in how and why species respond to environmental changes and how these responses can be predicted to design conservation strategies. I am also interested in the conservation of species, the impact of invasive alien species on ecosystems and the automatization of biodiversity monitoring. As a result my work centres around the development of large-scale trait-driven ecological models on biodiversity.
