Country: Spain. Departament de Biologia Evolutiva, Ecologia i Ciències Ambientals. Universitat de Barcelona.
Scientific trajectory: I developed my PhD in Ecology at University of Murcia (2014), where I studied how ecosystems respond to natural and anthropogenic stressors using different approaches. In my first postdoctoral position (Cardiff University, 2015-17) quantifying multiple-stressor effects in European rivers and identifying which river biodiversity aspects best predict ecosystem service delivery in UK upland rivers.
Later, I worked at University of Barcelona the mechanisms explaining river metacommunities at rivers in response to predictable drought.
Currently, I work as a postdoc at University of Minho exploring how climate change impact on river food webs and how this translates into changes in ecosystem multifunctionality.
During these years, I published 23 papers in SCI-journals, and published/edited ~200 outreach posts at my co-managed blog and other media.
Research lines: In my research, I explore the effects of multiple global change pressures on biodiversity and multiple ecosystem functions and services, using a variety of quantitative approaches. Combining taxonomic and trait-based approaches, my studies aim at identifying which ecological mechanisms link multiple-stressors, biodiversity and ecosystem multifunctionality.
My studies cover different ecosystems and organisms (river invertebrates and fishes, coastal plants, vertebrate scavengers) to look for general responses to global change.
