I did my PhD at the Miguel Hernández University in Elche working with the role of artificial irrigation structures for the conservation of waterbirds. Then, I focused for three years in understanding the structure and functioning of seed-dispersal interaction networks at the University of São Paulo (Brazil) and at Stanford University (USA). From there I moved to the University of Hawaii to learn how to apply bioacoustics to the study of bird communities. Since 20017 I am back in Elche studying different aspects of animal community and interactions ecology. I am specially interested in disentangling global scale patterns affecting scavenger (carrion consuming animals) assemblages and how they are affected by climate change and defaunation.
