My research interests are focused on the study of the impact of the invasive species Trichocorixa verticalis (water boatmen, Corixidae, Hemiptera) over the ecosystems.
Besides, I love all related with the aquatic ecosystems, insect aquatic, macroinvertebrates, host-parasite interactions (water mite with hemiptera). I improve my experience on the use of design experimental, work in the field, to identify both parasites and hosts, contamination by heavy metals, stables isotopes (deuterium) to study dispersion.
I am currently at the beginning of my PhD project on the "Ecology of the invasive species Trichocorixa verticalis and their effects on the ecosystem" with a Severo Ochoa grant with Andy J. Green and Marta I. Sánchez who are my directors.
