I am interested in ecology in a broad sense, although my research so far has focused primarily on community ecology, especially on plant-herbivore interactions. In fact, in recent years I have been
incorporating new points of view, such as the study of past ecosystems (paleoecology), the study of resilience drivers in ecosystems displaying alternative stable states or the integration of the social component into ecological studies. This last topic is increasingly taking a transversal nature in the studies in which I participate: can we really accurately describe the interactions within a trophic web, without understanding the human context in which these interactions unfold?
Most of my research, so far, has been carried out in seagrass meadows (e.g. Posidonia oceanica) and in coastal wetlands (both in Atlantic salt marshes and Mediterranean marshes).
