Since 2015 I am an ICREA Research professor at University of Vic and Coordinator of the Aquatic Ecology Group (GEA). I hold a PhD in Biology (2003) from University of Girona (Spain). After my PhD 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 passed European Commission full competitions for Research Administrators (AD5 and AD7). In 2013, I was awarded a Marie Curie Intra European Senior Fellowship to work at the University of Aarhus (Denmark) for two years. In 2013, I was also a Visiting Scientist at the Middle East Technical University, Turkey. In 2021, the researchers from the Center for the Study of Mediterranean Rivers (CERM) joined our GEA research group that now has 16 members.
