I am an ecologist by training interested in conservation conflicts. I am currently Associate Professor of Ecosystem Services and Sustainability at the University of Almeria (2020- ) and Affiliated Faculty at the Department of Biological Sciences at Idaho State University (2018- ). Since 2019, I’m Principal Investigator of the PAIDI Research Group the Sustainability, Resilience and Governance of Socio-Ecological Systems (SociECOS Lab).

During my professional career, I have spent over 8 years in the United States. First as Postdoctoral Associate Researcher working with Dr. Caryn C. Vaughn at the Oklahoma Biological Survey of the University of Oklahoma (2012-2015), and later as Assistant Professor at Idaho State University (2015-2018), where since 2018 I serve as Adjunct Faculty. I also was a visiting postdoc at CSU in Australia where I collaborated with Dr. Gary Luck (2010-2011) and at VU Amsterdam University in the Netherlands  where I collaborated with Dr. Peter Verburg (2011-2012). I also was visiting Ph.D. student at  the Laboratorio de Análisis Regional y Teledetección (LART) at the University of Buenos Aires working with Dr. José Paruelo (2006-2007).

As an socio-ecological scientist, I am overall interested in exploring the complexity of people-nature relations, with the ultimate goal of understanding the ecological, moral, and psychological dimensions of human behaviors that directly or indirectly affect nature conservation. Additionally, I am Associate Editor of the JRC-journals People and Nature and Journal of Arid Environments. Since 2018, I am also serving as Lead Author in the Chapter 3 focused on Different valuation methodologies and approaches of the IPBES  Values Assessment and coordinate the endorsed WaterSES project at the Program on Ecosystem Change and Society (PECS). I am member of the GEOBON Ecosystem Services group and Team Leader of the Dryland Working Group at the Ecosystem Services Partnership (ESP).
