About Me

I hold an MSc in Agricultural Sciences and Engineering, an MSc in Economic and Regional Development and I’m currently a PhD candidate of Ecosystems Management in University of Alicante, Spain.

Throughout my professional experience I have been involved as an expert in various projects focusing the Ecosystem Management interface. These projects gave me the opportunity to combine both scientific technical knowledge alongside with project management experience on regional development and environmental issues. Within the context of my PhD research on Ecosystems Management, I have participated as a researcher, consultant and project manager in numerous projects related to Forest Restoration and Biodiversity Conservation including eco-technologies on long term soil or vegetation change as well as land sustainable management for climate change mitigation-adaptation/policies.

At the same time I have sound experience in project evaluations, being currently an evaluator for “LIFE 2014”, the EU’s financial instrument supporting environmental, nature conservation and climate action projects throughout the EU. In this context, I evaluate proposals submitted under the Nature and Biodiversity scheme. Moreover, my participation in various International and European projects on climate change/environment gives me the opportunity to collaborate with different institutes from all around the world. Finally, as an active member of COST, an intergovernmental framework for European Cooperation in Science and Technology  I have enhanced my capacity in the fields of Climate Change and Biodiversity Conservation. Currently I hold a junior expert position of an EU project for Maritime Policy / Climate Change.
