I develop my research activities in the Biodiversity and Animal Conservation Lab of the Forest Technology Centre of Catalonia (CTFC). My research focuses in the analysis of interaction between the management of agricultural landscapes and the conservation of the biodiversity of steppe-land birds (particularly larks and sandgrouses). My activity focuses mainly on the performed population census of endangered species, study of behavior and reproduction and the study of habitat selection in order to applied research and transfer the results to the habitat management, specifically in landscape where agriculture and livestock activities are majority, and mainly develops in areas where agricultural uses are grain fields, fallows and wastelands. This line of research is worked with telemetry and radio tracking methods, and the analysis is performed using geographic information systems technology. The combination of these techniques is of great interest and help for obtaining applicable results, and represent the methodological basis with which I work.

At the same time, and on the other hand, after finishing the diploma of advanced studies and research aptitude (DEA) about habitat selection of the Bonelli’s Eagle, I am preparing my PhD thesis in zoology for the University of Barcelona about factors that determine the quality of the territories of Bonelli’s Eagle Aquila fasciata in Catalan coastal mountain ranges, habitat and land use modeling, and applications to conservation.

I am also member of Research Institute of Biodiversity (IRBIO), and I am part of Conservation Biology Team Bonelli’s Eagle of University of Barcelona.
