I studied Biology at University of Granada (Spain), where I also got my PhD on Aerobiology in 2008. At this period I became interested in geostatistic and their application to aerobiological data. After my PhD I taught Botany and Micology at the University of Granada.
Since January 2010, I was working for MISUR S.L. This young company aim to use olive oil waste, which is biotoxic, to crop the edible mushroom Pleurotus ostreatus, whereas the exhausted substrate remain completely harmless.
After one year and a half away from the academia I got a postdoc in the Ecoinformatic and Biodiversity Group (Aarhus University) to study plant diversity and distribution. After two years working in Denmark I got new postdoc in the Appalachian Lab (University of Maryland – Center for Environmental Science). My current research in the Appalachian Lab include the study of biotic interactions and dispersal limitations using Species Distribution Models (SDMs) and Community Level Models (CLMs).
