2013 BSc/MSc in Forest Engineering, Technical University of Madrid (Spain)
She develops her PhD (predoctoral contract funded by MINECO) at the CTFC under supervision of Lluís Coll and Aitor Ameztegui. Her research focuses on the analysis of forest resistance and resilience to natural disturbances by means of the assessment of stands composition and structure. Specifically, her PhD includes the computation of a response-type diversity index, the assessment and quantification of resistance and resilience by means of changes in stand characteristics over time, and the study of plant-plant interactions after disturbances. Moreover, she benefited from a three-month exchange grant at the Centre for Forest Research (CEF - UQAM, Canada) provided by the Marie Curie IRSES project NEWFORESTS (January to April 2016), and from a short-term scientific exchange grant at the INIBIOMA - CONICET (Argentina) provided by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (March to May 2017).
