Working with Mediterranean temporary ponds, studying their faunal community and their ecosystem functioning. Alterations generated by perturbations such as wildfire (linked to climate change) and generated by restoration activities are my Ph.D. research topics. More specifically, their effects on faunal community and their consequences on network changes analyzing how connectivity and dispersion between ponds help to cope with these alterations.

Aiming to acquire more knowledge on Mediterranean temporary ponds, their conservation, biodiversity and ecological functioning but also on general ecology topics.Also interested in large branchiopods and their distribution, conservation and diversity in the Iberian Peninsula.
