Research

Biodiversity, human activities and its effects towards nature have been always a matter of interest to me and these have been my point of interest during my studies. I have a BSc in Biology from the University of Barcelona (2013) and a MSc in Conservation Biology from Lund University (2015).

My PhD project aims to increase the knowledge on the field of ecosystem services delivery (especially for pollination) under future scenarios. I am looking at it through an interdisciplinary approach of different fields of research, including ecological modeling and future predictions, risk analysis, and communication of the resulted uncertainty.

The current environmental policy problems require strong evidence-based modelling to support decisions, and this project will contribute towards this goal.
