Degree in Environmental Sciences, Master in Industrial and Agri-Food Biotechnology, and PhD in Applied Environmental Sciences from the University of Almeria. My beginnings in research took place just after graduating, with technical support grants and collaboration grants in departments, participating in projects on the management of irrigation ponds for the conservation of biodiversity. During my doctoral thesis (FPU contract of the MECD), I participated in several projects with the aim of understanding how global change may affect biodiversity, food webs and the functioning of river ecosystems. I have taught the zoology area in the Agronomy and Biotechnology degrees in 2015-2018.
Since 2020 I am a postdoctoral researcher in the RNM-346 research team and I am currently participating in the RIOVEGEST project. I also teach the course "Hydrological Restoration and Regulation Actions" in the Master in Sustainable Use of Natural Resources and Ecosystem Services.
My research focuses on the effects of global change on biodiversity and aquatic ecosystem functioning, with a recent shift towards studying the physiological capacities of organisms to cope with multiple stressors.
RESEARCH GROUP: Aquatic Ecology and Aquaculture (RNM-346)
- Trophic networks in fluvial ecosystems
- Effects of global change on the biodiversity of aquatic ecosystems
- Environmental enzymology and nutritional stoichiometry
PROJECTS TO HIGHLIGHT:
I have participated in national projects (RIBARID, RIOVEGEST), regional projects (P06-RNM-01709, GLOCHARID), European projects for young researchers (URBIFUN, EUROPONDS) and global collaborations (FunAqua). I am also co-IP of the INVASORIAN project, funded by SIBECOL (young researchers).
