Plant ecology scientist at Centro de Investigaciones sobre Desertificación (CIDE, Valencia, Spain) of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas (CSIC; the Spanish National Research Council). My research focuses on the Ecology and Evolution of fire-prone ecosystems, and specifically on understanding the role of fire in shaping plant species, populations, communities and landscapes. [Brief Curriculum Vitae, CV].

Research interest: fire ecology, regeneration ecology, plant functional traits, evolution of fire traits, post-fire regeneration, Mediterranean vegetation, vegetation dynamics and modelling, diversity patterns.
