I was born in Girona in 1976. I graduated in 1998 and obtained my PhD in Biology in 2003 at University of Girona. After that I was a postdoc at the University of Oslo (2006) and the National Environmental Institute of Denmark (2006-2008). From 2009 to 2012, I worked as a research scientist at the European Commission-Joint Research Centre (Italy). I was also a Visiting Scientist at the Middle East Technical University, Turkey. In 2012, I was hired at University of Vic to set up a research group on aquatic ecology from scratch. In 2013, I obtained a Marie Curie Intra European Fellowship to work at the University of Aarhus (Denmark). In September 2015, I was appointed ICREA Research professor at University of Vic. Currently, I am heading the Research Group on Aquatic Ecology (GEA) that hosts ten members. GEA researchers are members of the newly created Chair on Water, Nature and Wellness.
