Curriculum Vitae

My interest in wildlife comes from my early childhood, and for this reason I decided to take a Bachelor´s Degree in Biology at the University of Extremadura. After this period, since I wanted to increase my knowledge on this subject, I went to the University of Murcia to study a Master's Degree in Wildlife Management. There, I took on the study of intestinal parasites in prey birds, focusing on a population of nestling Eurasian Eagle-owl (Bubo bubo). Since then, my interest for parasites has grown, and I have authored several publications on this subject in collaboration with a Portuguese Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre (CERAS), where I was for a period of 6 months with an Erasmus grant. I am currently enrolled in the PhD program of Earth Sciences and Technology at the University of Jaén, where I am developing new tools for monitoring and controlling sarcoptidosis in populations of wild goats (Capra pyrenaica) of Sierra Nevada National Park.
