PhD (University of Lleida), MSc European Forestry (Universities of Lleida, Joensuu and Freiburg) and Forest Engineer (Universities of Valladolid and Lleida).

My fields of specialization are forest restoration, agroforestry systems and adaptive silviculture. I have been technical coordinator of the EU-funded projects Interreg Pirinoble, FP7 Sustaffor, and LIFE MixForChange 

Before joining CTFC in 2006 I worked for one year at the FAO Sub-Regional Office for Central and Eastern Europe in Budapest, participating in projects related to sustainable forest management and forest policy.
