I am an entomologist with a strong focus on mosquitoes (culicidae) since my graduation in 1983 as that very same year I started working in the Mosquito Control Service of the Baix Llobregat in Catalonia. I have been conjointly managing that organization as co-director for the latest 39 years, mainly working on applied issues and new control methods, but also in mosquito ecology, sociological interactions of urban species, monitoring invasive mosquito species (IMS) and also taxonomic studies, including my PhD work in 1997. Presently, my position in CEAB allows focusing on ecology and tracking IMS in a Citizen Science Quadruple Helix frame, through the Mosquito Alert platform.
