About Me

Research: It is based on various aspects of Plant Physiology and Plant Molecular Biology

1) secondary metabolism of plants, specifically, the study of essential oils: its chemical composition and its antifungal activity against phytopathogenic fungi that affects sunflower, olive tree and other horticultural plants, Study of defense protein expression later a plant pretreatment with the essential oils. Several publications in journals of impact about this topic

2) Molecular study of biotic and abiotic stress in plants (olive tree, sunflower, Arabidopsis and pea mainly). Study of the expression of enzymes involved in the oxidative and nitrosative stress. Numerous publications and research projects in this field of study prove it

3) Genetic study of olive (Olea europaea L.), based on the search for genes involved in the transition from juvenile to adult and genes responsible for flowering on Olea europaea (MADS genes and others); molecular markers for varietal identification; genomic and transcriptomic. Coordinator of the project entitled "Detection and applicability of SNPs markers for diversity studies in olive tree varieties and genetic mapping". Researcher of Oligen contract awarded by Genome Spain. Several articles published on the genetics of olive tree, its transcriptome and its varietal identification by molecular markers.

Currently, I am associate to the research group "Ecology, Evolution and Conservation of Mediterranean Plant Communities" (RNM-354)" since January 2015. Previously member of the research group "Biochemistry and Cell Signaling" for 2002 to 2014 inclusive and above, between 1995 to 2001 I had associated to the research group "Physiology and Distribution of Vascular Plants " Several active projects related to the olive tree, ecology Ziziphus lotus and stress in plants.

I am a contract with Al Jouf University to study olive tree varieties in Saudi Arabia.

Wild pollinators are declining in occurrence and diversity in the EU and numerous species are threatened with extinction. This is a serious cause for concern because pollinators are an integral part of healthy ecosystems, where they play a central role in the maintenance of ecosystem functioning. Without them, many plant species would decline and eventually disappear, along with the organisms that ...

Sustainable soil management is paramount to keep soils in a good status for both agriculture and environmental needs. Over the past years, our understanding of the various threats to soil functions has increased. The recent, more in depth analysis of the importance of soil biodiversity for delivering important ecosystem services has identified major knowledge gaps on its role for the degradation o ...

The challenge is to build a fully functional, bench-scale prototype of an artificial photosynthesis based system which is able to produce a useable synthetic fuel. Artificial photosynthesis is widely considered to be among the most promising new technologies to deliver sustainable alternatives to current fuel supplies. Due to its ability to use a combination of sunlight, water and carbon from the ...
