During my life I have worked with several birds species but I am particularly fascinated by raptors. I am also very interested in the application of technologies such as Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and drones as new tools for species conservation.
I finished my BSc in Biology at Seville University in 2007. My first contact with Spanish Imperial Eagles was at the Breeding Center in San Jerónimo (Seville). Since then, I have worked with this endangered raptor both in Doñana National Park and on the Reintroduction Project in La Janda (Cádiz).
Currently, I work in the Applied Ecology Group at Doñana Biologial Station (CSIC), where I am responsible for the monitoring of the Spanish Imperial Eagle population in Andalusia. I do both the fieldwork and the analysis of the satellite GSM/GPS and GPS datalogger transmitters data. I am also collaborating on the monitoring of the Osprey population in Cádiz with Migres Foundation and reviewing power lines to avoid raptors electrocutions with the Environmental Administration of Andalusia.
