I have an MA in Law (University of Valencia) and a PhD in Politics (Keele University). In 2005 I was awarded a Diploma of Advanced Studies at the University of Salamanca and in 2006 a European Union Marie Curie Early Career Fellowship brought me to the UK, to Keele University's Research Institute for Law, Politics and Justice, where I began my studies in green political thought. At Keele, I completed my PhD in 2011 with a thesis entitled "Promoting eoclogical citizenship: the state, civil society and the green public sphere", supervised by Andrew Dobson. Then I was a researcher at the Inter-university Institute for Local Development under the VALi+d Programme for Postdoctoral Researchers. Afterwards, I worked in The Netherlands, where I taught in the MA in Philosophy at Radboud University Nijmegen, and in South Corea, as assistant professor in the Dual Master's Degree from Hankuk University of Foreign Studies and the United Nations University for Peace. In 2015 I moved back to Valencia to join the Geography Department. I have been a visiting research fellow at the Instituto de Investigaciones en Humanidades y Ciencias Sociales, Universidad nacional de La Plata, at the School of Management, radboud University Nijmegen, at the Faculty of Chemistry, Biology and Geography, West University of Timisoara and at the School of Social, Political and Global Studies, Keele University. My teaching and research interests have developed in the fields of green political theory and environmental politics. Lately I have been working on environmental conflicts, the relationship between environmental sustainability and the city and the analysis of policies and social practices with an impact on the agro-food system.

In March 2020 I became the Director of the University of Valencia's International Centre of Gandia

I am a member of the research-action group Recartografias and of the Inter-University Institute for Local Development
