Since I was little, I was attracted to nature. Later I had the opportunity to study Biology, what gave me another vision of my surroundings. This knowledge gave me the opportunity to take care of my family farm, from which I try to improve not only the lives of the animals but the oak woodlands around them. In UVa I work in two lines of research. One is linked to obtaining biogas while the other involves using dendrochronology to study tree growth in a context of global change.
