Since 2014 I am an ICREA Research Professor in Computational and Theoretical Ecology at CEAB-CSIC and hold an associate research position at CREAF. I hold a MSc in plankton ecology (1997), and a PhD in Biological Sciences (2005) from the University of Barcelona, Spain. I joined the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University (USA) from 2006 to 2009. I completed my postdoctoral research on vector-borne diseases at the Institut Català del Clima (IC3). With a Ramón y Cajal position (2010) I founded my own lab at CEAB-CSIC, currently it is a joint lab with other researchers, named the Theoretical and Computational Ecology Group.In 2018, I was awarded as Distinguished Researcher by the Spanish Research Council (CSIC), and by the City Council of Barcelona (Spain) Premi Ciutat Barcelona 2017.
