I have a degree in Biology (Universidad de Salamanca 2001-2006) and a master degree in conservation of plant genetic resources (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, 2009-2010)
At present, I am developing my PhD project (Ecogeographical analysis as a tool for the conservation of crop wild relatives) in Universidad Rey Juan Carlos. We are focused on the conservation of crop wild relatives and, to that aim, we have worked in the proposal of a national conservation of crop wild relatives (https://pgrsecurespain.weebly.com/proposal-for-the-spanish-cwr-conservation.html).
At the moment, my PhD thesis project is structured in five chapters: 1) National inventory and prioritization of crop wild relatives in Spain. 2) In situ conservation of prioritized crop wild relatives in Spain using ecogeographical tools, 3) Endangered and endemic crop wild relatives in Spain: conservation status at a glance 4) Phytosociology and ecogeography applied to crop wild relatives and 5) Common garden experiments with Lupinus angustifolius L. in the search for drought resistance.
Other research interests are related to the conservation of high mountain plants, particulartly working with Silene ciliata Pourr. and local adaptation processes trying to palliate climate change effects. This work is developed with my colleagues in AdAptA Lab team (http://adapta-lab.com/en/home). Follow us in Twitter or Facebook! @AdApta_Lab , https://www.facebook.com/adapta.lab
