I’m Professor of Ecology at the University of Pablo de Olavide in Seville, Spain, where I teach several courses of specialized Ecology, amongst which is Land Rehabilitation.. My current research interest has to do with the system plant-soil-microorganisms and how the interactions carried on might be used in land reclamation and land rehabilitation. For four years I worked for the Government of one of the Spanish Regions, were I was responsible for Environmental Quality and Impact prevention. At the moment I’m also strongly involved with the Spanish Foundation for Cicular Economy, foundation that is a national referent on the topic. I’ve got research experiences in Australia, South Africa, and Argentina and Canada.
